Refugee Youth in Public Space


Creative story-mapping workshops in Leipzig

In order to provide some insight in the project, we would like to present some pictures of the fieldwork. First, the Leipzig case study. The German team organized three storymapping-workshops in which they asked newcomers to note down, share and map stories they attach to particular places in the city. Throughout these workshops, two of which took place during city festivals, around fifteen young refugees and asylum seekers shared their experiences of public space, how they negotiate arrival and engage with the city. Check out the pictures to get a first impression.
