Arely Landeros

[In-person] MICROPOLIS: Creative tools for social innovation
Time: 12-3pm //
Location: Courtyard Studio at 122 Community Center / Neighborhood

>>Register Here<<

Let's take a walk around the neighborhood and explore our connections between the self and place, then gather in the studio for some collective actions. We will experience a participatory walking interview from within the group, to be introduced to this qualitative research method that can be useful for gathering data from the experience of the body in outdoor space (specifically now that a new normal is being established).

Please note: This workshop will take place partially outdoors and will include a walk around the East Village neighborhood. While you are outside, masks are optional. While indoors in Movement Research locations, masks are required. The outdoor courtyard has an uneven surface including gravel and interlocking plastic floor tiles.
