Tom Schofield - Plural Heritages of Istanbul

Multimedia project exploring the heritages of Istanbul

Three screen shots of an app which shows walking route on a digital map

This project combines films, digital artefacts and written outputs created from an AHRC Newton project: ‘Plural Heritages of Istanbul, The Case of the Land Walls’. The digital artefact ‘Plural Heritages’ is a smartphone app for Android. The app takes co -produced video and audio content from our project and embeds it a series of alternative, ‘bottom up’ (in the sense of deriving from non-expert, everyday perspectives) walking tours around the UNESCO site of the Theodosian Land Walls. The films are a set of 35 shorts, co-produced with local film crews and research participants.
