The Map- lective is a collective of black and brown women working with the map. We take techniques of personal care embedded in black communities and use them to deal with maps. In dread-locking or braiding the map, we are creating a space for a new understanding of maps. This Inaugural work spanning 6 metres was created At the Royal Geographic Society London.

This group was initiated by Sonia E Barret (Visual artist MA MFA MRSS) 

Founding members include:  

Dr Pat Knoxolo    Dr Tia Monique      Ava Abeng

Obafeyikemi Luther.    Lea Bematol.    Bea Tizzy


We are looking forward to the next iteration responding to another space.
