A Different LENS is emotional cartography. We’re working with artists and community to bring the map to life.
The map entries engage with authors who became blind or visually impaired during their lifetime. It makes connections with Margate through the contributions of artists and community members from East Kent Mencap.
Maps are somehow shy. But when we scratch the cartographic surface, maps appear to be impregnated with all sorts of emotions (Emotional Cartography: Caquard & Griffin).
We gratefully acknowledge our funders – the Arts Council of England and Wales, Kent County Council and Margate Now.
