Changify Raval

I am very pleased to have been part of this project with Priya Prakash and Changify. It was fun to spend a morning exploring La Boqueria in Barcelona as part of the Heroes of the Mobile Fringe Festival 2014 It was interesting meeting some of the market traders and the management of the market and understanding some of the issues both residents and traders face. It’s no surprise that there is no simple solution, but there are ways of adapting digital technologies to meld with the traditions and culture of the market. This is just the first step on the journey.
