Mark Hackett will give a talk on mapping spaces in Belfast at 2pm on 7th June at the Ulster Museum. The talk is part of an exhibition Mapping Alternative Ulster running in the Museum from 8th May and 22nd June.
Maps of Northern Ireland are often used to illustrate traditional political divisions, but they conceal a much more nuanced and interesting place. This landscape, rural and urban, is much more than a site of conflict.
This exhibition brings together diverse mapmakers: local historians, activists, artists, geographers and urban planners who interpret our surroundings in different ways. Mapping Alternative Ulster re–thinks our representation on maps.
