Create a bas relief of the Emerge Willoughby Map with Janet Parker-Smith. 

This year, the Emerge Festival presents the Emerge Willoughby Map, a vibrant illustrative map of Willoughby which features the city’s landmarks. The Council curated exhibition, Cities Foretold, includes a community project based on this very map. Artist Janet Parker-Smith has created a large copper plate etching version of the map and invites visitors to use the etching technique to print the different features and landmarks of Willoughby, which will be gradually added to the map throughout the duration of the exhibition.

This drop-in workshop will take place at Art Space on The Concourse on weekends from 11am to 4pm. Participants will be able to learn more about the printmaking process by printing on paper a feature from the map that they can take home. All ages are welcome to participate. 

The complete map will be installed at Chatswood Library after the Cities Foretold exhibition.

Cities Foretold is a contemporary art exhibition which reimagines the Chatswood CBD and the future of all cities in general. Part of the Emerge Festival, this exhibition focusses on ideas relating to how future cityscapes will look and function.
