the Workshop

The first phase of this Workshop will take place in Lima Peru, from the 3rd of February till the 10th of February 2014.

The aim of the workshop is to work with communities from the area of Barrios Altos and JMC, in Lima Peru, in order to define the areas and the issues to be mapped using the advantages of innovative methods and rapid prototyping such as 3D mapping, crowdsourcing, Augmented Reality and 3d printing. In doing so, this research seeks to develop innovative and critical strategies for the reading, writing and audiencing of maps.

Adopting a participatory action -learning approach, the project will enable local community mappers to explore innovative pathways to reframe hegemonic cartographies. It seeks to open the writing of more inclusive representations, and to expand the room -for-manoeuvre for collectively negotiated outcomes that contribute towards the planning of more democratic and sustainable cities.
