Wednesday 23 November 18.00 – 20.00
UCL/DPU Room 101 34 Tavistock Square London WC1H 9EZ
Presenters: Les Roberts, David Overend and Simon Woolham
Les Roberts examines questions of deep mapping as an evaluative term in cartographic practice and ask if there is there an optimum depth to strive for. The focus of David Overhand's talk is a series of experimental and creative journeys taken by the author from Glasgow to Ayr, between 2014 and 2016, under the title ‘Route 77’ – a network of roads and paths loosely following the M77 motorway. Simon Woolham discusses his forthcoming exhibitions and projects including The Macc Walks, Taking-Back-Space, In Search Of The Shortcuts, Rural Routes and The Bolsover Walks.
Livingmaps Network was established in 2013 with the support of Mapping for Change, the Young Foundation and the Centre for East London Studies to develop a network of researchers, community activists and others with a common interest in the use of mapping for social change, public engagement and community campaigning.
