Maps of Northern Ireland are often used to illustrate traditional political divisions, but they conceal a much more nuanced and interesting place. This landscape, rural and urban, is much more than a site of conflict.
This exhibition brings together diverse mapmakers: local historians, activists, artists, geographers and urban planners who interpret our surroundings in different ways. Mapping Alternative Ulster re-thinks our representation on maps.
Mapping Alternative Ulster will go to the Market Place Arts Centre in Armagh. Watch this space for events and future shows of Mapping Alternative Ulster.
