Medialab Prado
Collective Intelligence for Democracy Workshop
Madrid, Spain
Nov 18-Dec 2, 2016

I applied on behalf of Participedia’s Design & Technology team to participate in the Collective Intelligence for Democracy workshop, hosted by Medialab Prado︎︎︎ in 2016. My proposal, a participatory design process based on foundational data and technology of Participedia, was selected as one of eight featured projects for the event. I represented the Participedia project in Madrid, and led a two week design research process with participants from around the world. 

My team explored grassroots activism in Madrid through storytelling and multimedia experiments, including 360 degree video. Based on the hypothesis that storytelling may increase  engagement with Participedia content, ultimately inspiring citizen action, we developed a prototype visualization of Participedia data with a focus on media︎︎︎.
