The Reading Room
“The real world is nothing like that shown on maps.”
– Denis Wood
With this quote as its premise, Dash-Dot-Dash looks at what it means to map a part of the city using personal observations. This workshop, organised in collaboration with The Reading Room, aims to challenge singular, official narratives of public spaces, and establish more intimate and meaningful, as well as personal and communal relationships with ‘place’.
The city produces threshold spaces – zones where concrete things and less material impressions intermingle. By re-mapping the street through our experience of boundaries, between public and private spaces and through the lenses of accessibility, safety, and the five senses, the workshop will equip participants to explore, act on, and bring these shifting thresholds to light.
In this workshop, participants will walk around Cubbon Park and its vicinity, gathering back at MAP’s Education space to co-create maps.
The walk starts at the State Central Library in Cubbon Park.
The Reading Room is a collaborative storytelling project that enables us to think of places differently.
This is a paid workshop with limited spots. The registration fee includes a specially designed toolkit that participants will be able to take back and refreshments.
