On Location: International Mapping Charette

From site: Office of International Education

Charette: a kind of collaborative session in which a group solves a problem or completes a task within a limited time. Traditionally these have had close ties to fields like architecture and graphic design. Our version is both a sort of performance piece and a workshop session that will result in an exhibit. Anybody can watch you work—or just come look at your work. Map: a visual representation of a place. Location: at least three of them! The place you were in your international study. The place we’ll gather for this on-campus happening The “place of paper” on which—the frame within which--you’ll create a visual representation of your experience on location. Maybe you want to do a cognitive or conceptual map of your sense of a place you were. Or you could assemble some artifacts (such as photos or documents) in a graphic design. Or you could find some other way to visually render your experience as a “citizen of elsewhere.” We’ll provide poster paper, drawing materials, rulers, glue, and a few other items. You provide the experience. 60-minutes for the charette, then we’ll “cart” (hence the term) the results to the exhibit space.
