Mae Gen i Go’, Caernarfon, Wales 2016
Mae gen i go’ (I remember something) was a joint project between Theatr Cynefin, GISDA in Caernarfon and STAMP which involves collecting sensory memories from the people in the town and placing a plaque in the exact location of that sensory memory…but not any plaque. It is a QR Code on a slate which guides people who have smartphones to a webpage with a picture of the person and a recording of the sensory moment.
The aim was to develop a new way of community consultation that is also effective as a community regeneration tool that celebrates the aural history and living heritage of a town and turns this into a vision for town planning that builds on peoples sensory experiences and expectations of their built environment.
You can find examples of the QR Code recollection here.
