Exploring Eastside with mobile technologies

The Eastside Project

The Eastside project ran from 2007-8 and looked at the proposed redevelopment of the Digbeth and Deritend areas of Birmingham.  We wentout gathering people's stories about this part of the city.  Sometimes we've just chatted to people in cafes, but we also asked people to give us guided tours of the area, recording what they said and - using sat nav technology - where they said it.

An exhibition of the work in Digbeth and Eastside took place 24-31 October 2008.  Download the exhibition catalogue.
