Map the town: The South Central Waterfront “Walk & Draw Walkshop”

Artist, architect and founder of the inventively crowd-sourced project Austin’s Atlas, Ann Armstrong is teaming with the city to create  a crowd-sourced “Peoples’ Field Guide to the South Central Waterfront.”

On Thursday and Saturday Armstrong will be leading her family-friendly “Walk and Draw Walkshop,” a free pedestrian powered mapping project where participants are outfitted with paper, pe, and clipboard, and then asked to tackle a specified block of the South Central Waterfront.

Austin’s Atlas will provide everything needed to participate.

Meet at the American-Statesman’s Bat Observation Center, 305 S. Congress Ave.  Quick briefings and instructions will take place every 15 minutes.

  • “Walk and Draw Walkshop”
    6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday
    10 a.m. to 12 noon Saturday

The completed maps will be stitched together to form a singular map that will be exhibited and used as the city’s South Central Waterfront Initiative gathers public input to guide development of the stretch of Lady Bird Lake between S. Congress Ave. and IH-35.

Those who complete a map at the end of the “Walk and Draw” events will receive a copy of the delightfully illustrated “Austin’s Atlas Urban Oddities” pedestrian guide.
