Mapping days we’ve had

Narberth

7th December 2018, 10am-4pm
Span Arts, Narberth

Map Digi Penfro, the Pembrokeshire ‘deep mapping’ project returns for another community mapping day in Narberth on December 7th.  The day is an opportunity to share stories and knowledge about Narberth with the intention of recording information to an online map in order to create a ‘deep map’ of the town and surrounding area.

The term ‘deep map’ relates to a practice that has special relevance to Pembrokeshire.  In the Spring of 2002 artist and theatre director Cliff McLucas (1945-2002) walked the whole of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path with the intention of creating a Deep Map, combining landscape picture with other media including text, diary, sound recording and moving image onto a multi-layered map.

 

Attendees to the Narberth mapping day are encouraged to bring items such as documents, photographs and objects that might hold information about Narberth through time and space as well as their own stories about the town.  In preparation for the day Span Digidol have enlisted the help of their Clwb Digi members who have been trained in digital recording, photography and how to upload materials to the map.

According to McLucas’ mapping manifesto, “Deep maps will bring together the amateur and the professional, the artist and the scientist, the official and the unofficial, the national and the local.” The Span Digidol team will be joined at their base in Narberth by guide and storyteller Andrew Dugmore and other experts who will also share their knowledge in order to add to the map.

 

Participants from Span Digidol’s pilot mapping workshop in Garn Fawr in Summer 2019 had the following to say about the project:

“What a good idea!  The whole county will be involved in individual local projects as I understand it.  Presumably to contribute towards alleviating isolation in an already isolated community.”

“This is anyway a breath-taking place, but this experience has given greater insight and kept me thinking about it for long after the visit.”

“I think it is a really good idea.  It will allow people to see the history of different areas on a more personal level, and find out about more about family and friends.  It is also accessible to everyone.”

 

Map Digi Penfro are working with John Ewart from Planed’s DATRIS programme (Digital Assets and Training for Rural Innovative Solutions), Alan Cameron Wills, programmer and Span Digital Champion and Pembrokeshire College computing student Geraint Skeats.  All will be on hand to assist workshop participants to upload materials collected through digital photography, audio recordings and filming onto the map.

Broad Haven

Saturday 1st February 2019 10am-4pm
Broad Haven Youth Hostel

 

The Digidol project Map Digi Penfro continues with a hands on workshop at Broad Haven Youth Hostel.  Map Digi Penfro is an online digital map that allows people to record information that is important to them about the places they live in and pass through.  Information can be recorded as text or image including photographs, drawings, audio recordings and even short films.

The day will be an opportunity to share stories and knowledge about Broad Haven with the intention of recording the information collected onto the map in order to create a ‘deep map’ of Broad Haven, rich in voice and content.

Attendees to the Broad Haven Map Digi Penfro Day are encouraged to bring items such as documents, photographs and objects that might hold information about Broad Haven and the surrounding area as well as their own stories about the place.

In preparation for the day Span Digidol have also enlisted the help of Broad Haven Primary School who are investigating their school archive to find materials to put on the map.  This follows on from an animation workshop Span Digidol held in the school in October 2019 inspired by the famous UFO sighting of 1977!  The short film they made, ‘We are not alone’, can be viewed on the map here.

The day will be led by the Map Digi Penfro Team including the map’s developer Alan Cameron Wills and Digidol volunteer Geraint Pickard Skeats.

In Broad Haven we are also pleased to be joined by archaeologist and ‘mytho-geographer’ Erin Kavanagh who will present her own reflections on Broad Haven from the perspective of her research into the submerged landscapes of the Irish Sea including the role of the imagination in encounters with place.

Join us for Imbolc – St Bridgid’s Day – traditionally celebrated as the first day of spring on the edge of St Bride’s Bay.

No technical experience or expertise necessary.

Warm and water-proof clothing and stout footwear recommended as there will be a beach and cliff walk – weather permitting.
