"Mapping Communities" is an Artachat discussion that took place on the 4th December 2010 with internationally renowned writer, activist and curator Lucy Lippard, artist and educator David Harding and community artist and activist Chrissie Orr.
Nuno Sacramento (Director, Scottish Sculpture Workshops) Claudia Zeiske (Director, Deveron Arts) and Piers Blaxter (town planner, Aberdeenshire) were also key figures in the debate.
The discussion took place between the small market town of Huntly and (on skype)at the Santa Fe Art institute and set out to:
• Explore what we mean the concept of Mapping a Community when working with socially engaged arts practices
• Reflect on Maider Lopez's (current artist in residence at Deveron Arts) project, "How do we live this place?" more info on the project here: http://www.deveron-arts.com/wb/pages/artists/maider-lopez.php
• Reflect on new publication "Artocracy" and the Deveron Arts Methodology
