Map-Making for the magazine Amag!
MAP-MAKING PROJECT FOR THE AMAG! MAGAZINE
ACVic Centre d’Arts Contemporànies has prepared the article-project of May for the magazine Amag! under the title of Map-Making Project. The article is called Map-Making, a proposal for an experience of learning about and representing the surroundings where we live, by means of research, creating a walkabout, taking pictures and organising the visual information as a map.
The aim is, by means of collaborative work, to rediscover the surrounding environment, and to find a different way to walk around it, to understand it, and to analyse the place where we live. The article proposes an alternative perspective on our surroundings, to learn about and to question the city which we are building, representing things which interest us and imagining how the city might be in the future. The activity may be adapted to group needs, and can be more or less complex, depending on participants' interests and age groups. The project blends audiovisual training and the world of cartography, learning about our surroundings while enhancing relationships among participants.
