What is Asheville?_HATCHlings (USA)

WHAT IS A collaborates with 10 TO 10 creating a site-specific project on arts education for children and youth for Asheville (North Carolina, USA). The first step was in HATCHfestival, April 11-17, 2011.

"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!." 
Martha Skinner (10 to 10).

Project created and directed by Martha Skinner. Jorge Raedó is mentor in HATCH. With the collaborations of: Brian Miele (film-maker), Micah Mackenzie (photographer), Graham Hackett (poet), Laura Jensen (actress), SisterJ SpiritVoice (beekeeping). At the Asheville Desig Center.
