About Mapping Brixton
Come and share ‘your’ place in Brixton and help make
a people’s map of the area.
Arch 505 houses the colour press studio where you
can come and learn about the art of letter pressing
and how the Adana works.
We want to gather the Brixton community and ask
them to choose a place that’s meaningful to them, from
the railway arches to grandma’s house after school.
They’ll letterpress their chosen place and put it on a
map of the area, which will evolve and grow during
the workshop in a visual expression of the community.
Prints will be made on business cards or postcards and
‘pegged’ to the wired frame. This allows for flexibility
over the workshop to grow and move the map around.
Plus our thought-givers will also get to keep a copy of
their own personalised printed place of belonging, too.
Each hour we will change the colour of ink to help
create a colourful belonging map of Brixton.
By the end of the day, a colourful tapestry of words and
imagination will show a map of belonging in Brixton.
