âAnimapping Lambeth' is a participatory art project being run at The Portico Gallery on the first Sunday of each month for 3 months.
The project is about using the voices of the people, and the history of Lambeth, to create 3 animated maps of the area through a series of photographic printing workshops.
At the first event 61 people helped animate a giant hand printed map of Lambeth by transferring portraits of themselves onto their favourite places and using the typewriters to create a key about what makes those places so special.
At the second event the public created photographic prints from vintage negatives of the places that were most popular on the map. All the prints were exhibited on the gallery wall forming a picture map of Lambeth from 1900.
For the third and final event there will be an archive of found objects from the peoples favourite spots, and participants will learn how to use them to make a cyanotype photogram.
If you'd like to participate come to the gallery between 11-4pm and sign yourself up to one of the workshops.
The sessions are: 11am-12am, 1pm-2pm, 3-4pm and 4-5pm and there will be 10 places per workshop.
If you'd like to guarantee yourself a slot email Ella on firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred time.
All workshops are FREE.
