Create to Connect

Create to Connect, Day 15 – Welcome to my World!

Today’s challenge is set by London Youth. London Youth is a charity on a mission to improve the lives of young Londoners, through arts, sport, employability and social action programmes that are delivered in community settings all over London.

Create a map of your world. Think about which places you want to include: what are the places that are important to you, or hold some of your favourite memories? You could create a map of your house, your street, town, city or country, or it could be set in your own imagined world. You could paint or draw your map, add markers on to google maps, draw on top of a local map, or collect photographs and images of the places that are important to you. Anything goes!

If you have more time … 
Write a travel guide to this world – what are the top sights to see in your world? Scale your map up or down. If you started with your neighbourhood, what about a map of your street, or even of your house?

Does your map tell you anything about the places you care about? Do you spend most of your time in places you love, or is there another part of your world you want to explore more?

Share your work in a way that works for you – online or offline. You could join our friendly Facebook group, keep a journal, share in a WhatsApp group, with your friends and family, or on social media. The choice is yours.
