Closing Presentation for the Workshop

Organizers will give a lecture and a quick overview of the workshop, explaining the specific assignments given to the participants. The participants will then present their proposed solutions or projects. After this, there will be time for questions.

During the workshop participants will produce a new suite of «Moscow Stories». They will scatter across the city in search of original tales, dating from Moscow’s past and present, its politics and personalities, and all points in between. Expressive methods of field study will be employed during participants’ city searches (i.e. photographic «storyboarding», sound walks, counter-cartography exercises, site-marking, trail-marking, oral history, modern archaeology and creative non-fiction).
