Since May 2010 I have been collaborating with Emily Wilkinson of Mindful Maps on the Come to your senses project.
We give people an opportunity to creatively engage in and express their experiential, emotional and sensory experiences of a place. We use methods, such as collaborative mapping, to help visualise and reveal individual and shared experiences in a visual form. This process can expose underlying themes, issues and concerns.
So far we have facilitated Come to Your Senses as a pop-up activity in a community setting and as an activity for specific workshops. Ultimately we also aspire to offer this kind of project in different settings; for example community groups, organisations, schools, events and as part of other projects.
