Community & Culture

An informal information-sharing workshop about using digital maps for history and heritage projects.

Memory Mapper: Digital Mapping for Heritage Projects

Come along to this informal information-sharing event, intended for anyone interested in digital mapping and history β€” including heritage professionals working in archives and museums, and those involved in community-led or voluntary sector heritage and research projects.

Find out more about a variety of heritage projects using digital mapping tools, including:

β€’ The Survey of London (Dr Emily Mann and Dr Aileen Reid, UCL)

β€’ City of Women London and Jewish East End Memory Map (Dr Duncan Hay and Dr Leah Lovett, UCL)

β€’ European Literary Map (Olivia Scher, UCL)

β€’ This Is Black Britain (Montaz MarchΓ©, University of Birmingham/UCL)

β€’ Mapping Black London in World War II (Dr Ollie Ayers, Northeastern University)

As well as finding out the projects, attendees will have the opportunity to have conversations with researchers, ask questions, and understand how digital mapping tools can be useful to you and your own organisations and initiatives.

As part of the session, independent researcher Sabina Dewfield will be leading us through a workshop about using digital mapping in community-led and voluntary sector heritage and research projects, with a view to informing the next stages of development of Memory Mapper. This is an Open Source digital tool for mapping history and place, which is being developed at UCL.

Followed by time for networking and refreshments (tea, coffee and cakes).
