Help to map ‘where communities connect and creativity happens’
Tuesday, 10 October 2017
drop-in ‘MapJam’ to “collect stories, share ideas and create a map
showing where communities connect and creativity happens in Southampton”
takes place at October Books (SO17 2NG) on Saturday (Oct 14).
The event is all about finding out what makes Southampton special, according to the Creative Spaces website:
our MapJam will be making a map of our city on the day, capturing your
stories, thoughts and ideas about the spirit of Southampton. Where are
your favourite local, independent businesses or community venues? What
makes these places worthy of your custom or support? What difference do
they make to people’s lives? Share your stories about the difference
that they make.”
Artist Ollie Dean will be doing drawing on the day, and people can pop in anytime between 11am and 3pm to get involved.
It’s a collaboration between October Books, The Southampton Collective, Creative Places, Transition Southampton and Shop Local Southampton,
and part of Social Saturday, a UK initiative to encourage people to
support social enterprises which operate for people and planet, rather
than private profit.
