WE ARE HERE: A Marpole Community Mapping Project

WE ARE HERE, A Creative Community Mapping Project, IN PROGRESS, Summer, 2016
Role: Project Manager and Co-Artist
With current Emily Carr University students Simeng Wang, Xian Luo, and Cheryl Lee, we are developing a community engagement project based on their mural design. It consists of three mapping activities/works:

  • Street Mural Map: Based on a street and topographic map of Marpole, it spans 68th St. at Granville
  • Stitched Map: Created by the community, for the community, it features stitched patches marking places in the community with historical, personal, cultural, or environmental significance.
  • Paper Map: Using the community stories and suggestions, the artists will create a paper map with the suggested locations. Anyone will be able to use this handy version of the stitched map to discover their neighbourhood in a new, exciting way!
