You are invited to participate in creating Notes for a People's Atlas of 

Notes for a People's Atlas is a multi-city, participatory mapping and 
design project that invites participants to fill in the blank outline of 
the political border of their city or region with individual and 
collective local knowledge, forgotten histories, ongoing debates, and 
changing definitions of urban space.  The project was initiated by AREA 
Chicago, and has now traveled to Zagreb, Croatia, Syracuse, and more, 
including our own Boston.

We recently held a discussion, Experimental Geography: Mapping as an 
Activist Practice (details here: http://ow.ly/2aktj) where we introduced 
the project, and began to distribute maps.  In the coming months, we 
will be collecting completed maps for publication in a forthcoming book 
about the project by AREA Chicago.  We will also be archiving the maps 
for future use.

Please download, distribute, design, and deliver your own maps to us, 
either digitally or in hard copy, and stay tuned for a potential 
in-person gathering to create maps together.
