Participatory Audovisual Slideshows I: Digitally Documenting Communication Assets with Local Residents

 Audiovisual Slideshows: A Metamorphosis / Intersections Project

The communication assets of a community are an important part of the communication environment in a community's communication infrastructure. Communication assets are places and spaces in the community that facilitate positive social interaction. One of the ways to get a sense of the communication assets in a neighborhood is to work with residents to tell stories about those neighborhood spots that are important to them.

The following audiovisual slideshows were produced as a collaboration between South LA community residents, the Metamorphosis Project, and Intersections. We asked residents to tell the story of a neighborhood communication asset -- together, we went out into the neighborhood and took pictures and notes about the place they chose. All photos were taken by the residents and the audio recordings are residents’ own narration.
