"WHAT IS ASHEVILLE? was a week of play and experimentation in the streets of Asheville using Cell phones, GPS, text messaging and mission-driven exploration. Middle schoolers from various neighborhoods of Asheville engaged their city as Living Game collecting obstacles and opportunities. Their findings were be compiled daily into a Living Gameboard, an interactive collective journal were they dynamically organized and reorganized their collected information through the compositions of words, sound and imagery as a way to understand their city holistically. This lead to visions by our youth for our city, and a celebration on Earth Day!."
