Animapping Lambeth

You should all know by now that ‘Animap­ping Lam­beth’ is a par­ti­cip­at­ory art pro­ject we have been run­ning at The Por­tico Gal­lery on the first three months of FEAST. The pro­ject is about using the voices of the people to cre­ate 3 anim­ated maps of Lam­beth, 1 at each event.

At the first event 61 people helped anim­ate our 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 we will have cre­ated an archive of found objects from the peoples favour­ite spots, and will be invit­ing people to come along, pick a box and make a cyan­o­type pho­to­gram using the objects inside.

If you’d like to par­ti­cip­ate come on down 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 bagsy your­self a slot email me on with your pre­ferred time.

All work­shops are FREE (dona­tions most wel­come though)!

Hope to see you there!
