This is an interactive, multisensory installation by artist and researcher Dr Alda Terracciano, which explores various aspects of Moroccan heritage and culture in West London. Using an Augmented Reality software developed by UX designer Mariza Dima, it constructs a living archive of cultural memories while reflecting the challenges of gentrification and communal visions of a utopian space within the city.
16:00-18:00 Wilkins Garden room, Long Table conversation Urban Regeneration, Sensorial Heritage & Participatory Practices.
The conversation, organised by Dr Terracciano from the Embracing the Archive Cluster, aims to enquire the realities of urban regeneration for local communities in London, discussing it in relation to intangible cultural heritage and sensorial urbanism as well as exploring the tools that technology and participatory methodologies can offer to citizens engaged in the process. It is open to citizens, activists, artists, architects, heritage specialists, technologists and academics interested in future collaboration and action research. Here to register.
