Research Walk: Africville (August 2, 2015)

On Sunday August 2, 2015, NiS+TS led a public walk starting from the Africville Museum (at Africville Park, Halifax). This was a research creation walk in an area of Halifax affected by the Explosion of December 6, 1917. It was an opportunity to converse informally with each other, and to gather images, artifacts and ideas about this contemporary urban landscape. Participants used the methods of produsage (collaborative content creation, sometimes user-led) and psychogeography (an approach to experiencing space that is based on the dérive, a drifting walk through urban environments).
