A Climate of Change: creative counter mapping methods for sensing place
Team: Prof Wendy Steele, A/Prof Linda Knight, Dr Marnie Badham, Dr Troy Innocent, Rachel Iampolski
The project explores how we sense the more-than-human city in a climate of crisis and change. A participatory program: a seminar and masterclass engages a global audience with the radical potential of cultural mapping for understanding and engaging with cities in climate change.
Historically, maps have served as tools of colonization, ownership and exclusion, this work highlights the potential for creative participatory methods, insurgent research and public-led pedagogies for engaging with more-than-human cities in climate change. As a site for public practice and political praxis, cultural mapping is both a method of inquiry and a methodological tool for drawing attention to counter-narratives and the politics of land, place and history.
