Organized and facilitated by Anna Adler, Corinne Cappelletti, & Julia Rooney. Supported by More Art, created in partnership with The Artist Volunteer Center.
Through visual art, movement, and cooking, REMAP traces the often invisible journeys and stories of transient populations in New York City. Their goal is to generate a creative dialogue between the homeless and the homed through the process of mapping.
REMAP’s ongoing workshops held at shelters throughout the city enable participants to explore ideas of navigation, place and dislocation, as well as create a record of their experiences that will function as an alternative resource for the homeless and the wider public.
