RePLACE Beirut

Start Date: April ,1 2011
End Date: April ,1 2011
Location: 98 Weeks Project Space

Between April 2-10, 2011, rePLACE will organise a workshop at 98 Weeks research/project space to investigate and elaborate upon the tours submitted by rePLACE BEIRUT participants. The online collection of routes will be the jumping off point to (re)experience the city via the stories and routes of the people living here, creating a series of visual and historical investigations into the placeness of the city's inhabitants. Workshop participants will follow the submitted routes, documenting and recording with video, photography and sound their observations as led through the words of our guides, and selected points from certain routes will be chosen as 'landmarks' for further research.

The workshop will be accompanied by a public program including discussions and screenings. Please sign up to receive more information.

Participation is free but limited to 15 persons. Participate by submitting your own route. You may use either text, photography, video or sound to record your journey. Please make sure to indicate your departure/arrival points and modes of transport, as well as the approximate time it takes to complete this route. All submitted routes will be compiled and made available on this website for other people to view, download and retrace.
