Workshop presentation Neighborhood: A Docufiction Storyboard:
18/06/2017, 17:00 - 18:00

Location: Celiko centar, Tomašićeva 10

Anti-gentrification Editorial Board: Dafne Berc, Dino Belamarić, Bojan Mucko & Ivan Zaninović
Associate: Nina Gojić, dramatist

The name Design District Zagreb, besides denoting the festival, also denotes the part of town between Draškovićeva, Vlaška, Držićeva, and Zvonimirova streets. Before and after the festival, the neighborhood is temporarily or permanently utilized by various everyday protagonists, residents, tenants, strategic institutions, informal citizen initiatives, citizen organizations…

In the preparatory phase of the workshop, we got to know some of them, and together we made a mental map of the neighborhood in which it is in detail presented from various user perspectives. The neighborhood map is docufictional — the neighborhood is seen as a potential movie set defined by genres.

This hybrid, synthetic map will be used during the workshop as a basis for an interdisciplinary narrative experiment and as a means of further communication with the residents. The product of the workshop is a docufictional storyboard in the form of a fanzine addressed to the residents of the neighborhood. The aim of the workshop is creating narratives that oppose the simplistic logic of branding, and depict the reach of Design District as an area of various different, often irreconcilable paradigms, as a living space in which factography and fiction blend.

The workshop is open for young experts and students of design, architecture, drama, new media, cultural anthropology, and sociology, and anyone who thinks they can productively contribute to this kind of workshop.
