In response to the theme 'Roots' visual Artist Thomas Wells plans to create a living map of the area made up of the experiences and memories of Didsbury residents. Urban communities are built from interlacing networks existing together, networks that over time root themselves in physical geography. Communities have found many ways of recording the remarkable through monuments with the installation of memorials and alike celebrating or commemorating the great and the good. However, everyday life continues and remarkable events occur for every individual every day. The aim of the Community Mapping Project is to share these remarkable events with your neighbours and to celebrate the diversity of the everyday. The Community Mapping Project requires participants willing to share their stories. Working closely with the artist, participants will be required to offer a couple of evenings before the festival and to be available on 25th June from 11-4.
