Join us on Sat 19 Sep to create a collaborative multimedia map of Lboro market
MapYourMarket is part of Market Town, a series of new commissions and critical debate that sets out to re-imagine the future of Loughborough’s high streets led by Radar, LU Arts and Charnwood Arts, in partnership with Love Loughborough and Charnwood borough Council. The programme is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
Join digital artist Lara Salinas to collaboratively visualise the rhythms of Loughborough market.
You're invited to take an exploratory trip to the market and, equipped with GPS recording device, to document your experience - whatever that may be.
This workshop is designed to share your local knowledge by walking. You are invited to share the story of Loughborough market, starting with your footsteps, to produce a collaborative map. During the workshop you will be given a GPS recording device (a smartphone with MyTracks running). Then you will explore the market – maybe visiting your favourite places or searching for hidden gems– as the GPS device records your footsteps.
Upon your return, be ready to hand-draw your route on a blank map, and share your experience of the market. Throughout the day we will gather and share your stories consisting of GPS tracks, hand-drawn maps and multimedia documentation – using the hashtag #MapYourMarket.
