I had an amazingly inspiring time last weekend at the Engaging Geography seminar in Newcastle, its the first in a series and I heartily commend them to you http://engaginggeography.wordpress.com/
My head is still buzzing and I have many ideas to assimilate, these are just a few of the lovely folk i met:
lots of lovely map shaped resources (i found the inaugeration wordcloud fascinating) http://geographicalvisualisationresources.blogspot.com/
a low impact eco village project http://www.lammas.org.uk/
hauntingly beautiful meditation on a public space http://www.townmoor.net/
perhaps best of all was the chance to join the naughty but nice guerilla geographers on an action about ID cards, the only time in my life I have ever been confused with a cop. http://guerrillageography.blogspot.com/
It all happened at the star and shadow cinema which i have heard so much about and was not disappointed by. http://www.starandshadow.org.uk/ (my favourite door in the world, well this week anyway, is situated there) Manchester is missing a social centre!
