Spatial Storytelling: Create Your Own Illustrated Map of Austin

Maps show us how people, places, or features change over time. They represent the worldview of the mapmaker and the present. With the use of illustrated maps, we gain fascinating insights into some very different cultures and cultural footprint through history. They let us explore the worldview of the mapmaker as well as the design thinking process behind the task of creating it.

The city of Austin has gone extensive changes for years now, and the presence of building crews is the new "normal" local landscape now. Join us for a multi-disciplinary, hands on workshop about the use of illustrated maps to help keep Austin being Austin: our gastronomy, music, cultural and history.

Learn how to develop illustrated maps that let our city’s notable spaces stay in the spotlight and shine a light on the hidden gems thus preserving them for times to come as well as share them with the community. Attendees will leave with a map that showcases their perspective of Austin.
