You are invited to be part of a special mapping project that celebrates our community and its unique stories.
Simply download your blank map of Lane Cove which has been created by Sydney artist Peita Blythe.
You can illustrate, write, paint or collage the map to tell your story – perhaps a map of your favourite places in Lane Cove, your daily commute, memorable moments, the best walks, historical facts, or perhaps a foodie’s guide to the area. Maps are a unique storytelling device and we want your stories of Lane Cove.
Anything and everything can be mapped so the possibilities are endless – if you need inspiration then you can join a free workshop with artist Peita Blythe who will show you different ways to bring your map to life.
