This new version involved eight communities across Kent, each with a different background (from a primary school in Cliftonville to an international group of Franciscans in Canterbury). Cutting up old atlases, every person re-stitched the world according to their own personal logic.
The project culminated in a life affirming, multi-arts event that ‘occupied’ Kent County Hall in Maidstone. Part village fête and part sit-in, the building’s chambers of power were filled with interactive performances, open debates and thought provoking takes on traditional activities like cup-cake decorating and badge-making. Throughout the event, the sections created by the eight communities were brought together and added to by the audience to make one large new world map. The project was an accessible platform inviting the public to explore ways in which we all – as tiny individuals – are able to (re)construct the world.
