Artist Nicki to lead mapping of Riverside area
LOCAL artist Nicki Jarvis will be inviting people to 'map the Riverhead' at Navigation Warehouse in Louth on Saturday.
With a large-scale map of the area specifically provided by Ordnance Survey, she is inviting locals to contribute details about the people who have lived and worked in the Riverside area, from the late 1700s to the present day.
Ms Jarvis said: "The Riverhead area of Louth in the 18th and 19th centuries is full of tantalising evidence of its past as a bustling inland port, but the area has been changing and developing ever since.
"I am keen to gather fragments of knowledge from people about what has changed and make a new story-map of the area."

Nicki has been funded by Arts Council England to undertake a year-long community research project with a view to creating new artwork inspired by the Riverhead area for display in October 2014.
At Mapping the Riverhead people will be able to enjoy a free cup of tea or coffee, take a look at old photographs and historic records and have a chat about the changes they have personally seen and share knowledge about the past.
A community artwork, FAMILIARITY, from a related project to create a celebratory Diamond Jubilee patchwork with children and parents at Lacey Gardens Junior School, will also be on show at Navigation Warehouse on the day.
