Daniel Huffman and I are asking map makers to share with their/our peers stories of a time when creating a map stirred something within them. It’s called A Cartographer’s Story. This is the invitation:
Every act of creation is personal. Behind the cartographic theory, tools, and techniques, there is a human being who struggles, who triumphs, and who is driven by more than just a need to earn an income.
None of us is alone in finding empowerment, redemption, or salvation in our work; this is the gift of working in a creative field. Please consider sharing that gift by telling us stories about the power your maps have had within your own life.
We would be honored if you added your story to the mix, and feel that it can go a long way towards inspiring someone else who makes. Please send your story to aCartographersStory@gmail.com or if you’d rather write anonymously, you can use this form.
Daniel and I thank you in advance for the gift of your shared experience.
