Open house event regarding locative mediums in problematic social contexts

Geoartivismos is a meeting point which brings together researchers, open-source GIS (geographic information systems) developers, and social collectives geared towards locative mediums.

We will initiate geo-artivist projects and dynamics to improve the communication and digital capacity of collectives and neighbors, as well as create a prototype via the application that colectivo Constelaciones develops for the web documentary concerning the restructuring of the Poblenou district.

The open house consists of various micro-workshops about tools and dynamics for the community of collectives, the development of on line mapping collaborations, and the creation of web documentaries with geopositioned content and for the critical analysis of this media.

Aside from the micro-workshops, the event consists of two intensive laboratory days in which collectives and neighbors in Poblenou will prototype their project with the support of programmers and mentors.

The Constelaciones Poblenou web application will also be collectively tested by the way of a web documentary project concerning the gentrification of Poblenou, which the Constelaciones collective is developing as part of their residency at Hangar.

The workshops will be adapted to fit the needs and skills of the people who participate in them.

The first micro-workshop, “Efficient Networks and Ethics,” by Geoartivismos with Beka Iglesias will be held on Friday, October 2nd, and requires prior registration.
