Museum of Ransom

The Museum of Ransom aims at collecting videos of local daily life, made by anyone with more or less skills, using any kind of video equipment… even a mobile phone!

The main purpose is to gather stories, situations, family moments, street events, everything that goes beyond the “official” narrative of our city. People playing cards in the public gardens, kids playing at the main squares, the conversations in the windows, our grandmother’s soup recipe, the dives in the river, the heated discussions on politics taken on local cafes or the willingness to change the world.

In this Lab, participants will contribute with their own documentation of the futureplaces festival, which will then be made available for open editing. Bring a video camera device, and be part of a different way of documenting local realities.

Participants should bring:

Any kind of digital equipment that can make videos.
