Draw your life as a map

A zine making workshop with drawer Jeremy Smith (he/him) and illustrator Samuel Luke Beatty (he/him).

Have you ever thought about what the map of your life would look like?

Every map tells a unique story, we all use maps to help locate and find ourselves in the world. Maps have a narrator, the map-maker; a central character, usually yourself; a journey, obstacles, and various points of interest.

The journey of queer people is not always linear, as we forge our own paths in life. Join Jeremy Smith and Samuel Luke Beatty as we transform an A4 piece of paper into a hand held narrative map portrait, which shows who you are today and where you are going.

Materials will be provided. Bookings are essential.

Suitable for adults and children 12+.

This event is aimed at promoting the inclusion of LGBTQIA+ people by supporting and uplifting their voices and experiences. We strive to create a safe space for creative expression and learning. Harmful or disrespectful speech or behaviour will not be tolerated.
