Mapping Local Ecologies present a schedule of regular events and activities aimed at re-discovering and re-engaging with historical and newfound narratives within the locale of New Cross and South East London at large. In the form of a research group conducted through a series of physical and virtual walking tours, talks, and workshops held at and around the CCA, the year-long project aims to explore local oral histories and real or fictive narratives, and seeks to address themes of gentrification, local identity, and community-building. The tours and workshops will be led by various guest contributors, such as community members, local artists, and networks within the broader Goldsmiths student ecology. Aiming to engender a production of uncommon knowledge of shared urban space and imagine New Cross as a site of transformation, the group will collectively produce a cartographical document re-tracing histories and potential futures of the neighbourhood.
