MAPPING (and Remapping) CITIES

Wednesday 18 April 2018, 10.00am-4.00pm

Room G04 - Liverpool School of Architecture

Leverhulme Building - 25 Abercromby Square

Liverpool L69 7ZG

A one-day workshop & discussion with invited artists Inge Panneels (University of Sunderland / National Glass Centre) and Iain Biggs (University of Dundee / PLaCE International/LAND2)

This event will involve participants in map-making activities and into the debate of how mapping can be a practice and a methodology to discuss space and place.

Focusing on urban spaces we intend to explore personal stories and geographies that are usually absent from official histories and maps of the city. Participants will have the opportunity to develop their own interpretations and ‘readings’ of the city, exchanging their experiences and perceptions in a creative and stimulating environment.
