Embedding digital narratives and new media in urban planning
Foth, Marcus, Hearn, Gregory N., & Klaebe, Helen G. (2007) Embedding digital narratives and new media in urban planning. In Digital Resources for the Humanities and Arts, 9-12 September, Dartington, South Devon, UK.
Many new urban developments are systematically planned and rapidly built and marketed, creating instant “communities‿ in relatively dense concentrations. As a consequence, urban planners are turning to the social sciences, arts and humanities for answers to achieve socially sustainable developments. This paper discusses a narrative based approach to community engagement in the urban planning process. We describe the evolution of this approach and then give details of both a narrative resource kit as well as a method for arriving at this.
