TALK: Friday Talk: Participatory Mapping with Professor Petra Tschakert
|Friday Talk: Participatory Mapping with Professor Petra Tschakert
In extended field work in West Africa and more recent research in India and Nepal, Professor Petra Tschakert
has employed a variety of conceptual mapping approaches that promote critical engagement with marginalised rural communities and open up alternative routes for “doing” geography.
Using diverse tools such as participatory video, diagramming, scenario building and environmental theatre - all addressing environmental change in local places - Professor Tschakert is able to reveal what matters to people on the ground.
Join Petra as she discusses how these approaches can empower disadvantaged peoples, foster social learning, and promote resilience.
Presented as part of our Saltwater Mapping exhibition. Open now until 10 December, Saltwater Mapping is an exploration into how humanity has mapped the WA coastline over the past four centuries.
