what is this map?
storyscapes revolves around writing and a map. This map was created collaboratively by guests at the Interactive Resource Center. Starting with a few large sheets of butcher paper and a roughly drawn scaffoliding of downtown GSO (Washington Street and Elm Street), individuals added points of interest, significance and their daily lives to the map such as places to eat a hot meal, to find a days work, or routes to walk from place to place. the storyscapses maps allows viewers to see downtown through the eyes of someone experiencing homelessness.
