ONE STREET – MANY STORIES
workshop with URBIQUITY
a public road in a city, town, or village, typically with houses and buildings on one or both sides.
Every street holds countless possible narratives and experiences, as many as the eyes that have looked at it, and the legs that have walked through it. Every street is a container of personal stories and collective history; every street is a set of objectivities and subjectivities.
Urbiquity invites you to walk through, observe and analyse a selected street cutting across the diversity of the ever-changing NOLO neighbourhood.
Over a two-day urban research workshop we will explore the area using various research methods including lens-based media and storytelling through an audiovisual project.
Join in to stop, look at, feel and understand the importance of a single street in deciphering the complexity of the city. Urbiquity will guide you through preparing, conducting and representing an urban research project.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
– The steps of conducting an urban research project;
– The difference between documenting and researching;
– The limits and possibilities of different research methods;
– How to communicate your findings as an audiovisual project;
– Storytelling skills: how to translate collected data into an audio-visual narration.
– How to get the most out of different devices (camera and/or mobile phones).
HOW WILL YOU LEARN IT?
With some theory and a lot of practice, participants will be in charge of developing a short collective research project. The group will decide collectively on a research question and the suitable methods for investigating it with the help of Urbiquity team. Once the data is collected, the team will work on the storytelling – editing the collected data to form a short film compiled of the videos, photography, sound recording and other data.

The workshop will be held by an Italian, a Spanish and an Estonian. To speak English is the easiest way – a basic knowledge is alright if you’re either Spanish, Italian or Estonian, we will help you!
URBIQUITY is a platform for creative and critical urbanism founded by Stefano Carnelli, Pablo Conejo and Mattias Malk. Adopting a multi-disciplinary apporach, Urbiquity aims to investigate sociality in the built environment and generate new knowledge of the ways we inhabit increasingly multilayered, contextual and connected global localities. Our aim is to relate to seemingly imperceptible processes – either too large or small, too distant or close to grasp without conscious study. Urbiquity employs both urban theory and creative practice in creating new, interdisciplinary research projects.
