AKERSELVA DIGITALT – INVOLVING YOUTH CLUBS

2011-2012IMG_2052

Akerselva Digitalt focused on engaging youth in the design process. As part of the project we explored how a mobile museum guide may engage young people in the city, and what content they would prefer. This sub-project was based on collaboration with a youth club with 13 year old, and focused on how the young people related  locally to the river in their everyday life. The collaboration was based on technique of cultural probes translated into a digital cultural probe. We created a ‘cultural lunch box’  containing task cards, an IPOD, maps. The youth involved in the project worked with the media of this lunch box for a week, and we used their produced material, maps and diary notes to talk about their belonging to local areas along the river.
