Your Quarters, Your Culture Telling the Cultural Quarter’s affective stories

Posted: Wed, 28 May 2014 19:08

The personal stories that we share routinely through social media often reveal how we think about, feel and use the spaces where they happen. Pieced together, these affective stories can add an important social layer to the history of the places we occupy.

As part of the Affective Digital Histories project Phoenix and the University of Leicester will team up with Cultural Quarter residents to explore:

What does it feel like to live in the Cultural Quarter today?

What kinds of affective stories would we have liked to hear from past, and tell future residents?

How do we want to tell our affective stories about the Cultural Quarter?
