"What is Asheville?" was a week of play and experimentation in the streets of Asheville, North Carolina. 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 where they dynamically organized and reorganized their collected information through the compositions of words, sound, gestures 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!
