Storyboarding tools for public engagement: visualising the life-cycle of built-landmarks, and their impact on urban and social identity.
The project will explore how storyboarding tools, that is, annotated narrative sketches and collages, can play a new role in public engagement in the urban regeneration at King’s Cross. The National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement defines public engagement as ‘A two-way process, involving interaction and listening, with the goal of generating mutual benefit.’
The storyboarding tools will visualise linear narratives that derive from communities’ memories. By doing so, they will allow people to imagine potential futures of built-landmarks; and also examine how they confer a significant sense of place through communities’ shared experience of them.
