Based Storytelling Workshop
Location Based Storytelling Workshop
Based Storytelling Workshop was arranged in Bitola, Macedonia in summer
location of the workshop was in Tumba Kafe - a very beautiful hill close
to the city center, which is one of the popular areas where local people
come to jog and to spend their free time. The workshop participants worked
with different kinds of mindmaps with the themes varying from music to
family history and visit to assembly. The participants had different kinds
of backgrounds (students of pedagogy, geography etc.), but it seemed that
everybody were keen on experimenting new things and and also contents
that they might not study in their universities.
In the end, there were two projects finalised. Both of the groups chose
virtual medium to present their ideas. Mirjana and Anet were studying
the representation of nature in the history of modern art. They explored
how the theme is presented especially in paintings in different style
perioids. Basically their approach was to connect both of the mindmaps
together: Anet have always been interested in art history and Mirjam is
interested in nature. Their future plans for the study are that they might
work in co-operation with a museum in Bitola to create even more thorough
presentation of nature in modern art.
Olgica and Ivanco worked based on Ivanco's idea: they wanted to create
a picture of Bitola presenting different time perioids of Bitola at the
same time. The picture is like a visual map of Bitola. They collected
pictures from various sources and Olgica had a beautiful collection of
old photos of Bitola. They used aerial picture of Bitola as a basis for
the whole image; this created the map. Then they placed old and new images
on layers embedding them together to correct places on the background
image. Their future plans for the project is that they would like to make
posters for for example tourist information in Bitola.
