3Cs is born out of our enthusiasm with the power of maps

We work on mapping in order to:

  • render new images and practices of economies and social relations
  • destabilize centered and exclusionary representations of the social and economic
  • construct new imaginaries of collective struggle and alternative worlds.

We seek to create collaborations for engaged research and cartography — transforming the conditions of how we think, write and map and the conditions about which we think, write and map.

We work in a variety of media and have engaged in a variety of projects, from drifts to dis-orientation guides, from community-led convergences to hosting major academic cartographers, as well as participating in direct actions and publishing in activist and scholarly publications and conferences.

Our affiliations cross disciplinary, institutional and national boundaries. We work with artists, independent scholars, grassroots communities and university folks, in a range of settings including: cartographic collaborations, exchange of material, hosting and visiting, conference and publication participation, convergences, direct action organizing, and as much as our imagination and own capacities can deal with… we are open to improvisation.
