The City of Sydney Historical Association‘s October guest lecture will feature the City’s Curator Margaret Betteridge who will discuss some of the fascinating research she has undertaken for a new exhibition about mapping our City on Saturday 13 October.

This talk will showcase different methods of finding our way across our city – from the tracks, language, stars and seasons which Aboriginal people have used for thousands of years to the hand-drawn outlines of first European settlement, along with maps of Sydney that respond to the many different ways we move around to live, work and play in our city.

The exhibition will include maps in many forms, from traditional historical printed maps to contemporary cartography, including 2D and 3D images and digital videos, objects and interactive elements, projection and spatial mapping, public programs and walking tours and is sure to appeal to everyone who loves maps and the history of Sydney.

When: Saturday 13 October, 2:00pm.
Where: Lord Mayor’s Reception Room, Sydney Town Hall, 483 George St, Sydney
Cost: Gold coin donation. No bookings required.
