This is the second year of the 3-year learning initiative exploring the politics, ethics and aesthetics of map-making through the lens of contemporary artistic practice.
Over the past year, students in schools and colleges in East London have been collaborating with artists Yara El-Sherbini, Gayle Chong Kwan, Agnes Poitevin-Navarre, Susan Stockwell and Jeremy Wood. In workshops, they explored mapping and ideas about identity and place.
Come and see the results in a series of exhibitions in the Education Space at Rivington Place between June and July 2008.
The Mapping Beyond exhibitions are part of Iniva’s ongoing Creative Mapping project with schools in the East London area.
