The second Open House Artist in Residence, Isabella Martin, worked with local residents to explore North Cambridge and create a new map together in a project called You Are Here. The project is inspired by Kettle’s Yard, celebrating all the individual and unique things which make a place special. Isabella worked with local collaborators to turn memories, stories and hopes into a new neighbourhood map. It shows and celebrates what is unique about North Cambridge.
“I noticed that the only public maps displayed in North Cambridge were of the city centre. I want to create a map of the local area which celebrates the things which are important, special and meaningful to the people who live here.”
We’re please to announce that the Open House team has been installing the collaborative print into community hubs in the areas and places which were involved in the map’s creation.
Prints of the map are now on display at:
Arbury Court Library
St Andrew’s Church Hall in Chesterton
CRC Art Department
Orchard Park Community Centre
Arbury Community Centre
Church of the Good Shepherd
The Grove Primary School
The Red Hen Project
Buchan Street Neighbourhood Centre
The installation of the printed maps marks the end of Isabella’s residency. Open House now welcomes the new Artist in Residence, Harold Offeh. To find out more, click here.
Open House is a long-term creative programme with Kettle’s Yard and communities in North Cambridge funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Cambridge City Council. Each year the community selects the Open House Artist in Residence. To read more about Open House, click here.
