About the Event
April 22nd 2023, 12-3 pm, Liggett Studio, with Walt Kosty. Using place as inspiration, participants will consider how to use their creativity to “Invest in Our Planet”, which coincides with the theme of Earth Day 2023. Concepts of counter-mapping, participatory mapping, and unmapping will be discussed as alternative approaches to cartography as we re-examine our understanding and perception of geographical knowledge and the world around us. While some materials will be provided, please bring maps, markers, paper, and/or other materials to utilize during the workshop. There is no material fee for this workshop.

Steve Liggett will conduct a 5 short workshops in creating Artists’ maps. Each Wednesday from 6-8pm from May 31 – June 28. Through hands on exercises, the goal of this project is to show the participant the many ways to think about maps and to give them a wide variety of media to facilitate this. Each week they show what they accomplished from the week before and learn a new technique.
