This workshop aims to introduce students to the creative process of mapping. Artists, photographers, and designers have long appropriated maps as a means to document and make sense of experience and place. Traditional maps say ‘this is how the place is,’ but artists weave their narratives into subjective, personal, and equally valuable perceptions of place.

Participants will become psychogeography's and learn how to make personal maps through a creative process of observation and reflection. They will encounter different ways to record, including photography, drawing, written word, and artifact. They will learn how to collate a visual collection into a meaningful representation of a place. The end of the course will culminate in a collaborative map that will reflect their journeys and experiences.
