Mapping from above - mapping from below

Thursday 6 February PM. Twenty two women and men from  10 community organisations in the extensions of Jose Carlos Mariategui come together  with the team from DPU, CENCA, Foro Ciudades para la Vida and CASA to decide what to map. Zooming out to the wider territory of the quebradas reveals a map of constantly shifting borders and interactions and the community mappers decide to make this the focus of the fieldwork on Sunday. The borders define not just the current territory but the multiple visions and practices that converge in shaping the area, from the slow occupation of the slopes and the traces of quotidian actions to dwell the ravine, to the 'pop up' developments driven by informal land trafficking.
