Snibston Myth Maps Project
Jo is a Leicester-based visual artist who produces work in many mediums, and is particularly interested in making maps. She regularly works with Nottingham Contemporary on education programmes, has a long-running project in Corby and was commissioned to prepare work as part of the emergent Cultural Quarter in Leicester.
With the assistance of family groups from the surrounding communities, Jo set up three walks which explore the site of Snibston and the routes to and around it. She recorded responses, ideas, imaginative stories, memories and histories from the walks and created maps which mix fact, fiction, emotion and imagination.
Jo's work was displayed in the form of three movable light boxes which held the illustrative maps from the walks.
