Social Saturday MapJam
14th October 2017 // 11am-3pm
October Books, 243 Portswood Road, Southampton SO17 2NG
What makes Southampton special? During our MapJam will be making a map of our city on the day, capturing your stories, thoughts and ideas about the spirit of Southampton. Where are your favourite local, independent businesses or community venues? What makes these places worthy of your custom or support? What difference do they make to people’s lives? Share your stories about the difference that they make.
At the end of the day, we’ll have an online map and drawings that reflect the indie spirit of Southampton. We’re delighted to be teaming up with artist Ollie Dean, who will be doing live drawing on the day.
This MapJam is a drop-In event so feel free to come by anytime betwen 11am and 3pm or get involved online via Facebook or Twitter. You can post on our Creative Places Facebook Wall, Tweet us, or join in discussion via the Facebook group Shop Local Southampton.
It forms part of Social Saturday, a UK initiative to encourage people to support social enterprises which operate for people and planet, rather than private profit.
