Sign-up links for all off-sites will be sent by email to conference registrants only in late September. Advanced registration required. Capacity: 40.

A sensory walking tour to help increase consciousness of the sights, sounds, smells, touches and tastes of public space, and brainstorm how we can better harness them.

Each of the five senses plays a specific role in helping us understand our surroundings and building memories of a place. This off-site workshop consists of a sensorial walking tour and participatory exchange to collectively analyze a public space. The end result will be a placemapping activity and proposals for interventions that would improve the perception in the place. 

This project has the support of the Fondo Argentino de Desarrollo Cultural y Creativo Ministerio de Cultura de la Nación.
