    How would you design a map of the Bronx? Join them for a lively discussion of the Bronx Grand Concourse: A Cultural Map, the new interactive website that takes viewers on a multitude of adventures around the literary and creative history of the borough. Poet, performer, and professor Urayoán Noel, anthropologist / independent curator Libertad Guerra, and Executive Director of the Bronx Children’s Museum will lead a conversation with the public on the ways in which maps help shape, build, and reflect a community. By examining Bronx Grand Concourse: A Cultural Map, we will think about how cartography is used to define a social group: do we build maps for our peers, with the goal of serving local social and historical interests, or do we build maps to provide a representation of our community to the world outside of the Bronx?
