Call out for personal stories of maps

Do you have a personal story and connection to a map of Estonia that you hold dearly?

  • A secret map smuggled out of the USSR,
  • a hand drawn map of a relatives farm,
  • an illustrated map outlining different parish folk dresses, or
  • a map of a river whose banks have eroded over the years

f Iyou or someone you know has a map relating to Estonia and would like to share your story please get in touch with Lachlan Bell. The stories will be compiled into a short film outlining our connection to map-making and memory making within the Estonian community and be exhibited at AD Space at UNSW Art & Design in July (date TBC).

Participants ideally live in NSW and have time on a weekend to meet in person to record or call over the phone/computer as backup. Participants will be fully credited and acknowledged in the final work.

If this interests you and you would like to make contact please email Lachlan at
