Launching the 'LifeRoutes: Tyre' Digital Story Map

Explore the city of Tyre and its surroundings through stories revealed by its neighbors in short videos

After “Life Routes: Beirut”, NAHNOO invites you to the launch of “Life Routes: Tyre”. “Life Routes: Tyre” is a collaborative digital-story mapping project produced by NAHNOO and the YouCitizen research project. In this project, young people set out to explore the connections between the residents of the city and the histories, memories, and stories found in everyday spaces in the city. Through interviews with peers and older residents, the youth researchers collected the stories of people and places around them and re-told them in short videos by using digital photography, video, archival images, music, and sound. Through their stories we gain a glimpse of people’s sense of belonging and attachment to place in a constantly shifting urban landscape. 

As part of this launch of the “Life Routes: Tyre” digital-story map, we will showcase some of the stories, and hear from the youth researchers involved in its production. Please join us in celebrating the launch of the digital map and in discussing the stories produced by the youth researchers.
