Tim Stallmann is a cartographer based in Durham, NC. By day, he’s a worker-owner at Research Action Design, where he works with organizations and communities to co-design research, media and tech projects towards social change and collective liberation. His work focuses on the role maps and geographic data can play in addressing issues of racial, economic and environmental justice, especially stopping displacement and building neighborhood self-determination. Tim is a founding member of the Counter-Cartographies Collective, and a co-editor of the forthcoming A People’s Atlas of Detroit (Wayne State University Press, Fall 2019). He also loves to decorate cakes, and is still waiting for the right opportunity to make a map cake.
