This blog is devoted to the project 4 DIMENSIONAL MAPPING an event curated and produced by the recently established Fogo Island Arts Corporation.
The Arts Corp. is a contemporary art venue that specializes in residencies for international artists and the production of art projects and workshops engaging both local and international participants. The Fogo Island Arts Corporation is supported by Shorefast Foundation, a Canadian-registered charity using entrepreneurial methods to help secure prosperity for the region of Fogo Island and Change Islands.
4 DIMENSIONAL MAPPING is a locally rooted art project, an experimental workshop investigating the relationship between people and a place. Findings will be presented on digital and printed maps.
