The Documentary Series

An ongoing series of 1 day mapping events.

Quebec City (Rhuwnt Exchange), Morelia (Identitades), Copenhagen (Suitcase Project) London (MOM), Cardiff (Suitcase)


The Documentary Series is a one - day mapping event which invites people to explore their town centre and create a collective city document. Participants are invited to go out on the street, follow a pre mapped walk around the city and carry out a series of individually crafted tasks that explore different aspects of making a document about a place. Gradually over the course of a day the map becomes full of these observations, local knowledge over writing the objective science of the map. The maps which emerge as a result of the event are then kept and can be shown as a series (as above). More images of events below.
