Mapping Workshop

Come join us on the evening of May 1st to support the creation of The Trek Project. The Trek Project (thetrekproject.blogspot.com) is a multi-faceted, multi-media exploration of global identity, and citizenship. Filmmaker Helyx Chase (youtube.com/hhthinking) is embarking on this project to create a documentary about how we see ourselves within a global and local community; and how we are accountable/responsible within both of those communities. They will be traveling to Nicaragua this summer and following a group of youth from buildOn (buildOn.org) after school clubs in the Philadelphia and New York City areas as they build a school in a remote rural villiage. The event will consist of a workshop where we will explore how we see ourselves within the world through the creation of maps. Ultimately, the maps and discussion generated at the workshop will be included in The Trek Project. While the event is free we are asking for donations to sponsor the trip to Nicaragua and supplies needed while in the country.

7:30 pm at the A-Space on 47th and Baltimore, Philadelphia PA
