Abstract


Asset mapping, a method for unearthing and visually representing an individual’s or a community’s assets, has been used in the context of planning and creative industries.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together stakeholders from diverse backgrounds and practices to discuss and generate outcomes that make use of different perspectives of asset mapping methodologies.
At the core of activities, facilitators will demonstrate the ways in which asset mapping has been used with community groups within an area or neighbourhood in the Creative Citizens research project - a project which explores how different types of creativity and civic engagement intersect to add value to communities in the context of a radically changing media landscape.
