About Waymarking


This blog is an online sketchbook – a series of Waymarking musings, ideas, proposals and research in the form of diagrams, drawings, photos, found images and text. It aims to engage those interested in the context and development of the cityscape / the urban environment, such as artists, architects, community activists, performers, urban designers & planners – in Waymarking’s development and activities.

What is Waymarking?

Waymarking works at the intersection between community development, local economic development, regeneration and socially-engaged cultural/arts practices
