Artist’s Talk and Discussion
Friday 1 April, 2pm
Location: Online via Zoom
GAP 15 features Artist, Illustrator and Author Helen Cann. This is our second GAP Session this Spring exploring different approaches to maps and mapping.
In this GAP Session, Helen will be exploring her creative process through a few of her projects with us, including A Map of the Sea and the De La Warr Pavilion and We Dream of Blue Whales. Much of Helen’s work focusses on mapping the intersection of place, flora, fauna, history, linguistics and folk knowledge.
‘I believe that multi-level mapping like this can lead to a deeper understanding of the personal environment through which comes appreciation and a motivation to protect.’ – Helen Cann via PLACE Collective
