Field Experiences

Geography is not only the ‘maps and facts’ about the world we know from school and the news, it is also an approach to the world that is rooted in exploring complexity between people and between people and places in creative and participatory ways.  We have developed the following workshops and individual practices based on the curiosity-building tools of geography (mapping, storytelling, place-making, and exploration) to provide opportunities to "do" geography. 



We believe that engaging in the world encourages us to better know ourselves, our surroundings, and our relations with others near and far.  We invite you to use these activities to explore new or familiar places or to join us in one of our upcoming workshops.
