Groundswell and the Design Studio for Social Intervention present a
discussion of mapmaking as an activist practice with Daniel Tucker [1]. 
Daniel has worked as a cultural and political organizer in Chicago for 
the last ten years.

Join us on July 28th at 7:00PM at the Design Studio (1946 Washington
Street, 
Roxbury, MA) [2]. The location is on public transit, is wheelchair
accessible, 
and attending doesn't cost a thing. 

Artists, activists, cartographers, and everyday experimentalists
encouraged to attend!

WHY MAPS?
Because maps are a visual tool for sharing information with others.
Because they can be produced by many people and combined together to tell
stories about complex relationships. Because maps are never finished and
only tell part of a story that can constantly be expanded upon. Because
power exists in space, struggle exists in space and we exist in space.
Because we cannot know where we are going if we do not know where we are
from. 

The presentation will focus on Daniel's involvement with the Experimental
Geography [3] exhibit (2009) and his organizing of the We Are Here [4] map
archive. We will also craft submissions for Notes for a People's Atlas [5],
a book soon to be published by Daniel and friends.

Download the flyer PDF in print-ready [6] or web-only [7] format.
