REMIX THE CITY

Remix the City is an urban experience led by FabSpaces that also invites the youth to become more involved in their city by using their creative and digital skills to tell the stories that matter to them using the language of the YouTube generation.

The workshop is an experience designed as an evolution of the old-fashioned photo-walk, replacing the camera with a smartphone or tablet to create remix-able content. The workshop teaches the most important aspects of producing stories in the digital age, using our own HTML5 mobile application as a canvas to discuss important aspects such as Creative Commons, ephemeral content in the age of social media, optimizing content, remix culture, video encoding, etc. We are convinced that these are the tools that a new generation will grow up with to become a creative inspiration for the rest of us.
