Dear colleagues

Sensing the City Masterclass - Counter-Mapping as a Method of Critical Inquiry in Climate Change ONLINE WORKSHOP 

2 DECEMBER 2021 (*EOI Due 31st October 2021)

Creative artists and urban theorists will team up to share practical projects and approaches and facilitate a series of interactive mapping activities for sensing the city. Participants will be exposed to methods that are experimental and diverse including: visual art practices, digital and gestural drawing, sound art and sonic practices, walking, creative movement, performance and installations in relation to emotion and affect; aesthetics and sensory engagement including smell, sight, sound; conflict, tension and congestion; activism and play of the more than human world.

All participants in the Masterclass will receive a reading pack and video playlist prepared by the masterclass team, including materials and prompts to enable people to creatively experiment with a range of counter-mapping techniques in their own location.

The Masterclass is facilitated by an interdisciplinary team of artists and researchers from RMIT University, Melbourne including: MFI (the Mapping Future Imaginaries research network), School of Education; Contemporary art and social transformation research group, School of Art; and Critical Urban Governance Research program, Centre for Urban Research.
