UPDATE: Experimental geographers who were able to attend this event, and others who couldn’t be there, can download the template of the Notes for a People’s Atlas of Greater Boston map and get submission instructions here.
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!
Because maps are a visual tool for sharing information with others. Because they can be produced by many people and combined together to tell stories about complex relationships. Because maps are never finished and only tell part of a story that can constantly be expanded upon. Because power exists in space, struggle exists in space and we exist in space. Because we cannot know where we are going if we do not know where we are from.
Daniel has worked as a cultural and political organizer in Chicago for the last ten years. From 2005-2010 he edited AREA Chicago – the print/online publication dedicated to researching and networking local social and cultural movements in Chicago.
