Joy Diversion 9 - exploring, mapping & meandering in Manchester & Salford
Join us for another day of exploring, mapping and meandering in Central Manchester and Salford. Starting with maps of Manchester and Salford from 150 years ago, we'll propose expeditions to uncharted territories or revisiting previously explored places, strange meanderings and any other diversions that people fancy.
Often viewed as a functional place of work, retail and leisure, our city centre bounded by Trinity Way, Great Ancoats Street and the Mancunian Way is imbued with history, iniquity, celebration and endeavour. Whether you're new to the city or you're a life-long local, let us go out and find what’s out there, discover the forgotten spaces, create stories and map our city.
Adventurers will be split into parties and encouraged to map, photograph, document and bring back their findings to share with everyone.
