Mile End Art Map 2012
Since 2007, articule has published the Mile End Art Map to highlight and promote galleries, artist-run centres, and other places of cultural and artistic interest situated in Montréal’s Mile End. For this third edition of the map, articule invited its neighbours, fellow Mile End residents, to take part in a collective creative exercise relating to their neighbourhood. In a series of workshops (link to workshops page) held at the centre, participants were encouraged to reflect on notions of social cartography –socio-demographics, urban development, the places we reside in and appropriate, places of memory and places not represented by traditional maps. With this project, articule aims to inspire people to think creatively about cultural and artistic spaces, what they represent in daily life, and what the notion of neighbourhood means today.
The creation of the Mile End Art Map has been possible to the participation of Mile End neighbours and thanks to the generous contributions made by artist-run centers, galleries, independent boutiques and cultural spaces in the area.
