DISRUPT: Map Melbourne through stories

Tuesday 21 May - Sunday 26 May, various times

DISRUPT, Map Melbourne through stories

What are your dreams and desires for Melbourne? How can your stories of the city help map its future?

Taking over a 20-metre wall in the central city, DISRUPT is a storytelling project and exhibition to map the stories of our city. Contribute to this living and growing artwork through a series of map-making workshops. See the story map unfold with the contribution of story litter, an archive of discarded receipts and lists found on our streets by STREAT, a social enterprise dedicated to helping homeless and disadvantaged young people. Be a part of this collective storytelling project and disrupt the streets with your dreams of the city.

This event is held across multiple dates, times, and venues, all are welcome and registration is required for the exhibition Sunday.
