Spring Practicum Course Explores Storytelling at Union Crossing

Check out this video of the final presentation to the Lawrence Community Works Union Crossing Committee, describing programs devised by the graduate and undergraduate students in the Spring 2009 Lawrence practicum course in the Dept of Urban Studies and Planning (11.423 Lawrence Practicum: Info, Assets, and the Immigrant City). The presentation described three ideas for programs where LCW could incorporate storytelling as a process for community building around the re-development of a mill complex into green affordable housing and neighborhood revitalization – through channels such as on-site installation, skill-building workshops that feed into larger events, and virtual story documentation and sharing online on a social network.
