The maps have come a long way. The participants are engaging with the process on a very personal and detailed level. This workshop was focused on reviewing the content of the maps while reflecting on the individual memories of home that should make part of stories in the maps. We recounted how communities lived in participants’ countries of origin and how the participants see this in comparison to their lives here in the UK. We reimagined home, reconsolidated memories of place/space and time, and superimposed those memories and experiences onto the maps.
One female participant said: Here there is just hello between us and our neighbours. Another male participant said: At least there is hellos between you and your neighbours, ours don’t even make eye contact.
