Collaborative Ethnography

We try to include as many people as possible during each stage of our work. During the gathering stage we send out camera's, invite people to mapping workshops and spend time listening and observing. Once all the gathering stages are complete, we invite people to create living exhibitions out of all the materials. The workshops create conversation, with people debating what each thing means to them, and we document these discussions. We call it learning through conversation. 

The exhibition stays in place, somewhere visible, for people to view over time, for people to have time to begin to understand what it means. The exhibition informs and leads into the first draft of the culture manual.
