A mix of geographic techniques are being used to map Wollongong's social and cultural life. The CAMRA team has conducted a community mapping exercise uncovering perceptions of where Cool and Creative Wollongong resides. Wollongong PhD student Andrew Warren is researching the region's vernacular creativity by focusing in on three often overlooked aspects: the indigenous hip hop scene, custom car culture and surfing culture.
