First Edgelands Maps workshop in Medellín, Colombia
On March 26 and April 2 of 2022, the Edgelands team of Medellín got together with a group of young people for the first version of the workshop of Edgelands Maps. The participants were between the ages of 16 and 23, and were part of the program “Editores de Ciudad” of Casa de las Estrategias.
"The dynamic that makes me feel safe in my neighborhood is that at least there are no visible combos, there are no visible barriers, there are rarely robberies or assaults, there are guards, there are constantly public servants". Julián Hoyos Jaramillo.
"The cameras make me feel safe, that there are many people watching over us, taking care of us, keeping an eye on the environment, on what is going to happen or what is not going to happen."
As part of the Edgelands x Magnum project, I had to research about the rights we have to access information about the CCTV recordings of cameras in public spaces in Geneva, including who owns the cameras, where are the recordings stored, and how could I access the recording where I appear.
It is time for Cúcuta! After successfully applying We are recording you labs to Medellín and Geneva, we are excited to announce that it is time to bring the discussion to a new city.
Join us at the Open Innovation Festival to participate in “Dropping the Pin” and “Edgelands Maps,” and take part in the ongoing conversation about the digitalization of security and the way we live together as a society !
