We will create a collaborative map that follows our movements through the spaces where we dream and live. The movements we make within a space construct meaning, myth and the imagination of place. In this workshop, we will create a collection of dreams, myths and histories of Leticia and the surrounding areas. There will be a presentation at 2pm of photographs and research done during Stefanie
ʼs residency at UNAL in Leticia, followed by a collaborative workshop of map making and building an archive of the imagination of place.
