Journeys Workshop

A celebration of map making with Harry Beck's London Underground design, 1931 that is still the basis of the tube map today. We will also investigate Gill MacDonald's map- a mixture of cartoon, fantasy and topology. It was designed and distributed in 1914, and was an instant hit with the travelling public. Posters in the London Underground collection will be explored and activities will take place on making maps and recording local journeys specific to Hackney. The public will be encourged to participate in drawing, painting and/or using collage to develop a community artwork on journeys and local connectivity. This project was funded by the Arts Council England in 2014.
