WikiMap Weekend on November 26th and 27th
WikiMap Linz is an interactive city map that users can enhance with text, graphics and sound files as a way to create a virtual diary of the City of Linz. The result is the revelation of the city’s many countenances and countless stories. You can visit WikiMap Linz in person at the Ars Electronica Center or online at www.aec.at/wikimap.
The Wikimap Weekend program features special workshops that teach how to develop digital narratives with the help of user-friendly software.

Since time immemorial, mankind has been inventing plotlines and telling stories. Nowadays, digital media and technologies are opening up totally new possibilities of developing such accounts and giving them a form. In the “Digital Storytelling” workshop, a combination of image, sound and text is used to create stories. The result is a multimedia narrative that participants can even take home with them. If the plotline is set in Linz, it will also be featured on WikiMap Linz.
