Conference Mapping Culture: Communities, Sites and Stories

"This event is intended to explore both conventional and alternative approaches to mapping cultures and communities in an international context.
Presenters will discuss and illustrate innovative ways to encourage artistic intervention and public participation in cultural mapping.
They will also address the challenges posed by such artistic practices and community involvement in various phases of the research process, from gathering and interpreting data to modes of presenting ‘findings’ to interest groups from different sectors – the local public as well as specialists in the arts, research, public administration and planning.
Two key dimensions of current research with implications for artistic, architectural and planning practices and practitioners are:
(a) the participatory and community engagement aspect, especially in the context of accessible mobile digital technologies
(b) mapping the intangibilities of a place (e.g., stories, histories, etc.) that provide a “sense of place” and identity to specific locales, and the ways in which those meanings and values may be grounded in embodied experiences.
These two aspects will be highlighted in the conference presentations and symposium workshops, bridging interests of both researchers and practitioners."
