Cultural Placemaking Through Interactive Storytelling

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this fun and interactive workshop, heritage and preservation will be juxtaposed with interactive storytelling. Every community has its stories, its history and its legacy that we want to pass on. Austin's African American Cultural Heritage District invites you to share your ideas of giving the district a dynamic on-line presence. This map is of and is grounded in the African American Cultural Heritage District, comprising much of east Austin. This is an area of Austin rich in history and culture, but whose stories are often overlooked or not known in the rapidly growing Austin and gentrification of the neighborhood.
We will demonstrate our new interactive Discover Heritage Map which we collaboratively produce interactive multi-media with local middle school students. Hear what we've done so far and share your ideas for future development in a fun and interactive workshop.
