Joy Diversion 4 - A Day of Exploring in Manchester & Salford on Saturday 20th October 2018
Calling all ramblers, explorers and meanderers. Surveyors, cartographers and inquisitors - people who look up to the rooftops and down into the culverts.
Join us for our fourth Joy Diversion - and the final one of 2018!
As before, we'll be starting with maps of Manchester and Salford from 150 years ago, proposing expeditions to uncharted territories or revisiting previously explored places, strange meanderings and any other diversions that people fancy.
Take a look at the following link for a summary of the last Joy Diversion:
Often viewed as a functional place of work, retail and leisure, our city centre bounded by Trinity Way, Great Ancoats Street and the Mancunian Way is imbued with history, iniquity, celebration and endeavour. Let us go out and find what’s out there, discover the forgotten spaces, create stories and map our city.
Adventurers will be split into parties and encouraged to map, photograph, document and bring back their findings to share with everyone.
- Comfortable walking shoes or what ever you need to get around
- Weather appropriate clothing (it's autumn, time to break out those jumpers!)
- A phone: with a camera would be advantageous
- We recommend bringing some lunch, but there's plenty of places around the city to grab something.
The event is open to all, although minors need to be accompanied.
If you would like to help out on the day, let us know.
