Reasons to be mobile: Understanding your own geography

November 5, 2018 @ 10:00 am - November 10, 2018 @ 9:00 pm

Part of the ESRC’s Festival of Social Science, Sam Whewall explores the mobility and geography of everyday life in Bristol.

How and why do you move around your city and the world beyond Bristol? Are you a community-spirited or a globally-minded Bristolian? Where have you lived in the past, and where do you think of as ‘home’?

This event explores the past and everyday mobilities of people living in, working in or visiting Bristol. Drawing on research currently being undertaken at the University of Bath, the event aims to understand how people use their city and the world beyond, where they live their life, and the factors that shape their geography.

To do this we want you to get creative! The activity is really simple – we would like you to ‘map’ out the geography of your life on paper. These maps will help us – and you – understand what your geography means to you. The maps will be displayed at an exciting art exhibition in Bristol in April 2019, which will showcase the range of geographies that exist across this wonderful city of ours.

The event will be held at several locations throughout the week:

  • 5 November (10:00-15:00) at Kiln Workshop, 63 North Road (off Gloucester Road), Bristol, BS6 5AD
  • 6 November (10:00-15:00) at Kiln Workshop, 63 North Road (off Gloucester Road), Bristol, BS6 5AD
