Mapping for Civic Action - Inclusive Neighbourhood Planning in Elephant and Walworth

Barbara Brayshay, Nicolas Fonty


In this article, we describe how JustMap applied Aldo deMoors methodology to explore and make visible community sensemaking through community network mapping in Walworth, South London. Using deMoors approach of cyclical mapping, the community map evolved over a series of five workshops and a 'mapping game' held at local festivals and events. Participants added information, stories and aspirations to the map which grew richer with each iteration. As well as a geographic map, thematic affinity (cluster) maps were created and used to inform the Elephant and Walworth Forums short-term and long-term campaigns and proposals for an inclusive Neighbourhood Plan. It also enabled local people to find information about local campaigns and projects and get involved in action themselves.
