As part of the 5th anniversary of the DobraVaga Gallery, we’re taking a look at our surroundings and reflecting on the city and the relations between neighbours. We’re inviting you to a mapping workshop, led by visual artist Nika Rupnik.
Mentor: Nika Rupnik
Participants will take a walk around Ljubljana’s urban landscape, exploring it by visually documenting their own impressions and reflecting on how our movements and settlement habits have been changed by the epidemic. With the help of graphic techniques and group work, participants will be able to re-experience the city as the intertwining of architecture and the lived experiences of its inhabitants. In the end, the mapping results will be combined into a map of subjectively experienced public space.
The workshop is free and aimed at 15-year-olds and up. The number of participants is limited. Apply in advance at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Duration: approx. 3 hours
