Map as Inspiration – Undergrounding London

In 2009, Antonio Cortés, an English language teacher from Colegio Cardenal Spínola school in Spain, got in touch with the Museum to tell us about his project ‘Undergrounding London’. Since our first contact, the Museum has kept in touch with Antonio and his students, working together to develop new themes for the ‘Undergrounding London’ project. So when we started developing our collection in preparation for the Mind the Map exhibition, it seemed like the perfect opportunity for Antonio’s story to be captured for our collection. Hear all about the project and see some of the activities in action in their fantastic film:

Since taking part in the Map as Inspiration project, Antonio has continued to work with the Museum, including most recently when he and his students wrote some new labels for our upcoming poster parade ‘What is a Map’. We hope to continue working with Colegio Cardenal Spínola school into the future!

  1. Last Friday I spent a few hours with all my siblings at a special tavern in my hometown -a wonderful place to try the typical food from Andalusia- . I had not been there for a long time. During the meal I checked my twitter page and saw the LTMuseum’s tweet about Undergrounding London’s post being just published. It was really exciting: a project on which I’ve worked so hard, a place so special to me, and my family, to share the moment. All together made it unforgettable!
