Artist in residence Helen Edling has come up with an exciting new *call for work* scheme as part of the Alternative Tourist Map Project.

The project is about creating a map of locations that do not normally feature on the regular tourist maps. It's not about restaurantes, cafes, bars, galleries and landmarks, rather this map will show the way to experience Newcastle in a different way.

The Open Council are asking members to submitt their own choice of alternative location or activity for inclusion on the map. These can be absolutly anything as long as its not the sort of thing you find on a regular map.

Your submissions will appear on Helen Edling's Alternative Tourist Map project page.
