The Vision Pavilion was a mobile media community art project with children and youth, by Léola LeBlanc and Barbara Lounder in 2011.
It predated the formal incorporation of NiS+TS, but established our interest in using locative media in creative projects with members of the public. Working with children, teens and creative mentors in an exploration of the central Dartmouth locale near the waterfront Peace Pavilion, it created an enhanced sense of belonging to an historic, geographic and social neighbourhood. Participants collaborated in the creation of original visual and written art works using a variety of smartphone mapping, QR coding, photographic and voice recording tools. The Vision Pavilion was supported by the 4Cs Foundation, in partnership with the Centre for Art Tapes and the Youth and Teen Services Department of the Halifax Public Library, Alderney Drive location.
