free and open to the public
You are invited to attend a Creative Mapmaking Workshop, which I am leading at the West Lawn Branch on Chicago's south side. Participants will be guided to create a map of something important to them -- such as a memory map, cognitive map, or personalized map of a particular time in their life -- using art materials.
Over the past several months I have led Soundwalk Poem and Everyday Horns & Percussion workshops through CPL's Innovation Lab series. It's fun to see who will show up to these workshops -- Chicagoans of different backgrounds and age groups, including some intergenerational scenarios with parents and their kids.
Registration is required for this free event; you can register by clicking here or calling 312-747-7381.
It's great that the Chicago Public Library has been offering an Innovation Lab series since last summer. Maker labs in libraries can help people to creatively rethink what a library is, and how the public can engage in what libraries can offer. Check out their calendar to find out about other maker lab classes and workshops.
