About the Center
The Center for Locative Media works with different cultural and educational communities to enable the creation, delivery, and distribution of narrative histories of people and places using emerging and locative technologies. in creating place-based narratives, the community connects the past and the present, enriching both. The Center also conducts workshops teaching communities how to use emerging technologies and location-based services.
We’d like to reshape education; we’d like to bring together the civic, technology, and educational communities to develop skilled practitioners who use mobile, emerging and locative technologies for community enrichment.
To date, the Locative Media space has primarily been inhabited by artists. But as educators and amateur neo-geographers, we found a rich vein of place-based pedagogy to tap. Here story was already married to place. As technologists, we watched the tools become available to not only tag content to place, but to experience it in that place.
We are a think tank and incubation lab dedicated to the theory and practice and the art and craft of Locative Media.
