From place to being

4 August, 2016 4-5:30 PM 
Gardiner Museum

Curated by Crazy Dames as part of We Built This City

"Maps flip our attention from being to place, / from metaphysical time, to streets, roads and clocks. / Maps cheat our prospective response to depth" (Maps, Lee Maracle)

Forget Google Maps and your handy-dandy GPS. From Place to Being asks participants to (re)discover the wonder of undefined paths. Together we will take a collective route, but the maps we each create on this walkshop highlight our personal experiences, stories, and contexts, focusing on what we care about, what catches our eye, and asking us to determine what is important and interesting enough to make it onto a map.
