Spilt Milk Gallery CIC are inviting submissions of work in all mediums to be considered for our upcoming physical exhibition in Edinburgh, October 2022. 

The exhibition committee is interested in work which explores the relationship between geographies, maps and emotions. Responses may want to explore the following themes and ideas; an atlas of emotion, emotional mapping, the longitude and latitude of life, mapping motherhood, travelling domestic, conflict mapping, mapping mindset, memory mapping.

We were particularly inspired by Brené Brown’s book Atlas of the Heart where she gets to the core of “mapping meaningful connection and the language of human experience.”

The exhibition will take place at Edinburgh Palette, St Margaret’s House, 151 London Road, Edinburgh, EH7 6AE.
