Labyrinth provides alternative tours in contested places.
Every city has hidden stories hard-coded into its buildings, its streets and its art – stories that quietly enforce the rules we live by. We ‘hack’ cities for meaning, uncovering those stories so that together we can rewrite the rules.
Most tours tell you interesting facts about a place. We want to know what this place means. If you want a standard tour where you don't have to think too much then we're not for you. If you're ready to wrestle with the meaning of a place, then join us and hack a city.
Labyrinth makes the familiar unfamiliar and shows how the far-away is often closer to home than we think. So whether you're a resident wanting to experience your own place in a new way, or a tourist looking for an alternative way to get under-the-skin of a new city, Labyrinth is for you.
