ClubTogether asks for your memories

The people behind Acid House Love Blueprint launch collaborative mapping project

Following on from Dorothy’s Acid House Love Blueprint poster series, the Liverpool based art studio has launched an online memory map project. The web app asks partygoers to share their clubbing memories via an interactive map documenting eras, places and clubs.

“It’s early days but we’re loving the responses we are getting” says company director Ali Johnson. “As well as clubbers, DJs are getting involved too.” Johnson's favourite contribution to date comes from Tim Sinclair who recalls a conversation at Manchester's The Haçienda. “Chatted to Bernard Sumner once in 1983: I asked him what the new single was and he said, cocking his heard to the speakers: ‘this is it!’ ‘What's it called?’ ’Blue Monday.’ ‘Fuck me. It's a bit disco!’ I said, and he disappeared into the darkness.”

Via the app users can explore existing contributions, add their own memories and submit new listings. “No club is too big or too small and no memory is to old or too new to be included” they confirm.

The volume of memories is visually represented by a collection of tags that increase in size to coincide with the amount of entries.
