How is mapping a ground for imagining the future? The phrase “turning point” calls to mind a body in motion as well as a fixed location; it refers to a moment of crisis in order to shift away from it. Facilitated by Anne-Marie Trépanier and Hannah Azar Strauss, the roundtable will explore themes of futurity and solidarity, bringing together artists and researchers involved in community mapping projects including Queering The Map, the Parc-Ex Anti-Eviction Mapping Project, Womxn Walk the Walk, Spectographies, Geomedia Lab, and Paper Places. How can alternative mapping practices like these reorient us spatially in more critical and generous ways? The roundtable will consider how these projects act as tools for resilient memory and self-determination in the face of political, social, and environmental crisis.
