Mapping for Change

Despite numerous representations of cities from a variety of contributors, some communities and individuals remain marginalised. This means that their stories and experiences of the city often go unheard in the debate around the design, use and inhabitation of cities. Yet innovative participatory methods of data collection and representation make it possible to ensure these stories are told.

Focusing on work carried out in the UK, this panel highlights and describes the opportunities and challenges of working with vulnerable communities to tell their stories, and the methods and techniques employed by the panelists to overcome the particular demands this creates.
