Exit Map is many. Though the vision is driven by Laura Doehler, founder of Exit Map, it constantly edges onwards, expands and shifts because of practices and conversations artists and people share concerning an embodiment of social and environmental connectivity. Shaping dreams together as is shaping a future is always a work in progress and our negotiations and actions are what defines us as community. We play lost and found with each other, improvise, weave patterns and relationships with the intention to support one another as extension of ourselves.
What defines our community?
It is an interest to meet social and environmental connectivity via an embodiment that is explorative, playful and reflective to get us closer to understanding purpose and value of each living thing for us to be well as a whole. And to feel free to move, free to be and have an approach to life that is like dancing.
You can put a name on the map as though to connect the dots of who we are together
.... a name that is representative of you. That way we get a sense of who is our community. It's nice to get a feel for where we are, the dance lovers and space explorers, and to own our neighbourhood by visualising that other playful misfits are right beside us. If you would like to get in touch with people on the map write to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pass it on. Maybe you want to ask who wants to lie like a lizard in the sun or pick up some plants you grew at home? Perhaps you are doing a street party or a clothes swap ...
When you put down your name you can add some info about which places you love that are near where you live. Part of the idea is not only to map people but spaces that welcome being well and being well together.
