Drawing as World Building

**POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE**

Cartographies of the Imagination presents a forum for the multi-disciplinary exploration of cartography as world-making.

Staged over two weeks, the otherworldly setting forms the inspiration for a series of conversations, screenings, workshops and a growing exhibition exploring map-making as a live process of navigation between our physical and perceived worlds.

House of Maps

The greenhouses will host an exhibition of three years of experimental drawing research of architects/artists Sayan Skandarajah and Kirsty Badenoch. The two contrasting approaches present large scale drawing works charting projected, transformed and re-imagined land- and city-scapes in Kyoto, Iceland and London.

Drawing Workshops

A series of drawing workshops based around the gardens will uncover, interpret and reimagine it’s hidden secrets and stories in an ongoing 1:1 collaborative drawing project. Specific workshops for community and school groups, architecture and art students will trace, translate and re-imagine a chapter of our new cartography, each drawing adding to the last as we build, grow and populate the cities and gardens of our imagination. Workshops will be run as half-day, whole day and drop-in events.

The Living Exhibition

The drawings from the workshops will add to a growing exhibition over the course of the events. The greenhouses will become live artist studios, open to the public daily and inviting passers-by and special guests to contribute to the collaborative drawings.

Symposium

The forum will centre around an interdisciplinary symposium, inviting researchers, scholars and artists to discuss alternative perspectives, projects and practices of cartography. Participating fields will include architecture, landscape architecture, geography, urbanism, art, art history, local history and film.
