I’m currently working on a project that celebrates the music of my home town.
Mappa Music is a big, hand drawn, alternative map of Wakefield, where all the street names are replaced to celebrate bands & musicians, past and present, from the Wakefield District.
#MappaMusic is part of the Long Division #OntoTheStreets commission programme. The map will be exhibited during the festival starting on 29th May.
People are invited to suggest who they’d like to see on the map via this form.
All the names on the map will be drawn from the list of suggestions. It’ll be an interesting challenge seeing how many names I can fit on the map – to date there have been almost 200 responses.
