Mapping the Neighborhood with Compasses, Maps and Fun Activities

Polly Branch, Acorn Art |

Bring neighbors together to explore the neighborhood from a new point of view in this two-hour workshop. Roanoke-born artist Polly Branch loves working with neighborhood groups. She’ll share different kinds of maps to explore, engage participants in fun conversation prompts about creating maps, and host some activities using a compass that participants can decorate to take home. This is a great start for meeting each other and doing more together as a neighborhood!

Participants: Four to 20
Ages: All
Value: $200.00
Requirements: Please provide an indoor space with tables and chairs for beginning and ending the mapping orientation activities. The group will also need an outdoor area to explore with compasses and maps. Supplies will be provided.
