Video Mapping & Storytelling workshop

Zeitgeist Art Center

New Orleans

Friday 13th April 2018

The workshop focused on how critical video mapping can be used a community engagement device and decision-making tool using methods applied by filmmaker and geographer Jessica Jacobs for the British Academy funded project ‘A Different Sense of Space: How Bedouins Mapped the Sinai’.

Using a base map of cities including New Orleans we created icons inspired by significant events and people in order to develop ways in which mapping can be used with film to situate stories of social justice in place.
