The camp will be held in two separate events; each will be two day in length. Assignments will be given to participating youths to create a short mapping exercise of their own and present their findings during the next activity.
The final activity of the campaign will include again a 4-day camp focused this time on storytelling. Based on the content generated from the mapping process, each participant will be supported to create their own presentations based on data/information collected in the prior activities. Multiple stories will be collected through the engagement of each participant in and around the locality to gather as many perspectives to feed into the ‘Dream city’ concept. Stories will be collected in audio-visual form via Mobile device.
