Discussion Event :: Mapping as an Activist

Wednesday July 28, 2010 at 7 pm
1946 Washington Street, 2nd Floor, Boston, MA 02118

Groundswell and The Design Studio for Social Intervention present a discussion of mapmaking as an activist practice with Daniel Tucker. The presentation will focus on Daniel’s involvement with the Experimental Geography exhibit (2009) and his organizing of the We Are Here map archive.

We will also provide blank maps with the political border of the Greater Boston Area so that we can craft submissions for Notes for a People’s Atlas, and we’ll explore ongoing mapping projects by attendees. Artists, activists, cartographers, and everyday experimentalists encouraged to attend. Admission to this event is free.
