Take part and watch it grow – the Interactive Map of Margate!

Join a celebratory #DistanceDrift led by the artist, Sonia Overall on Sunday 13 September at 10 a.m.

Sonia is a writer, psychogeographer, founder of the Women Who Walk network and a Senior Lecturer at Canterbury Christ Church University. Sonia’s project DistanceDrift for Margate is a remote, synchronised walk responding to the sites and texts of #aDifferentLENS

The Map was previewed last of week at 4WCOP, the Fourth World Psychogeography conference in Huddersfield. And now you can take part. Slip on your walking boots (even if you chose to stay at home) and experience some walking prompts which respond to great stories.

Maps tend to hide their emotional side behind their clear lines, precise points, minimalistic words, numerical data and informative purpose. (Emotional Cartography: Caquard & Griffin).
