The Millbank Atlas

Marsha Bradfield, Shibboleth Shechter


The Millbank Atlas is an ongoing collaborative project that brings together researchers, students and local residents to trace the neighbourhood of Chelsea College of Arts. In the 2016 - 2017 academic year, students of BA (Hons) Interior and Spatial Design used practice-based research to create cartographic experiments that identify distinguishing characteristics of the lived experience of this part of London. The maps were showcased in a week-long exhibition, accompanied by a public events programme. The following account describes this iteration of The Millbank Atlas across text authored by students and staff (tutors of the course who also curated the exhibition). We re-present the content of the handout that accompanied the exhibition, reformatting it here as a photo essay that includes discussion and images of the public events programme. This aims to present The Millbank Atlas as distributed across artefacts and activity.
