Symposium | Radical Cartography Now
This day-long symposium at Brown University focuses on digital, artistic and social justice approaches to mapping In the public humanities, powerful tools for critiquing institutional authority and imagining alternative ways of thinking about place. Radical Cartography Now brings together historians, activists, social practice artists, digital humanists and community members whose maps reveal new histories, new knowledge and new ways of co-creating artwork in and with communities.
The afternoon panel titled Participatory Mapping in Social Practice Art and Design features presentations by artists whose work revolves around map-making, including Rosten Woo, Lize Mogel, Elisa Hamilton, Gwen MacGregor and Sandra Rechico, and the final panel titled Counter-mapping Providence (and Tulsa) features Aaron Forrest, Associate Professor of Architecture at RISD. The conference is free, but registration is required, and we do plan to fill the venue to capacity, so if you intend to come, please register soon.
