How can mapping tools and concepts be used to realize self-determined visions in Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities? This panel will bring together an international group of creative mappers and planners to discuss how they invite community participation in decision-making processes about the preservation and sustainability of BIPOC communities. Featuring Laura Bustillos Jáquez, Steve DeRoy, Sadra Shahab, and Armando Sullivan. Moderated by Stephanie Johnson-Cunningham.
Radical Mapping: Making Meaning in our Communities (April 15 & 16) is a virtual public program exploring how Black, Indigenous, and POC communities can creatively use practices like cultural asset mapping, cartography, and archiving to invest in and make meaning of our neighborhoods. This three-part event will gather artists, historians, mapmakers, local leaders, and community members. Together, we will learn how mapping concepts and methods can democratize decision-making processes about our neighborhoods' preservation and sustainability.
