Place-making & Mapping Beyond Binaries
How can maps guide us beyond the binary models of virtual/material, IRL/URL, and public/private? Taking an embodied queer approach to mapping, this two-part workshop will explore the sometimes incongruous (but always generative) relationships between digital mapping software, embodied place-making, and free form mapping methods like cognitive or community mapping. Participants will be introduced to Google MyMaps, Google Earth, and QGIS, in tandem with indoor/outdoor activities exploring physical space and grassroots data collection. Participants are encouraged to mix methods of their choice to collect and visualize data into unique maps of their own.
To allow for remote participation in its public space activations, this workshop involves an asynchronous portion between its two scheduled parts.
