Mapping | Community | Art
About This Event
Join us for a public workshop that focuses on three themes: • We use maps to spark conversations about how residents of Syracuse imagine their relationships to the city and world around them. Although mapping is often associated with objective facts, we are equally interested in exploring how maps can represent our personal experiences of Syracuse and the world beyond. • We use community as a way to engage in ongoing conversations about how ‘we’ come to define who we are. Shaped by histories of race, social class, migration, gender, religion, and more, we are curious about the ongoing projects through which people make and remake their communities. • We use art as a means to celebrate beauty, exploration, and curiosity. It provides a means not only to document the world as it is but to offer possibilities for imagining the world as it could and should be.
