Joy Diversion is back for 2019!
Join us for an day of exploring, mapping and wandering in Central Manchester and Salford. Starting with maps of Manchester and Salford from 150 years ago, we’ll propose expeditions to uncharted territories or revisiting previously explored places, strange meanderings and any other diversions that people fancy.
Often viewed as a functional place of work, retail and leisure, our city centre bounded by Trinity Way, Great Ancoats Street and the Mancunian Way is imbued with history, iniquity, celebration and endeavour. Let us go out and find what’s out there, discover the forgotten spaces, create stories and map our city.
Adventurers will be split into parties and encouraged to map, photograph, document and bring back their findings to share with everyone.
See a round up of the last Joy Diversion, which took place at ODCamp 6 in Aberdeen here.
The event is open to all, although minors need to be accompanied.
If you would like to help out on the day, let us know.
