Most of our activities were documented with video. We used a modified iPhone setup which was handy and discrete, but despite using a good mic our sound quality was never very good.
In the first phase we get around town with our Street Kitchen so we can offer a drink or a bite – thats always a good way to make people stop and talk.
We write keywords on temporary signs or Street whiteboards and start to make the discussion about space more visible and part of space.
If there is a market or a public event we set up the street kitchen along with a map of the city. This usually makes people talk about memories, local conflicts and favorite places.
We print out stickers with keywords and stick them on the map. This documents the previous stories and encourages people to comment on these.
Here you can see some of the sketches from the workshop. Many of them have become reality in the meantime. In the Social Housing area we choose to renovate an old Cirkuswagon that became an icon for that project. For CiTyBee we choose a more mobile Street Kitchen which in some ways resembles the “Peacock” in some of the sketches.
