Media in piazza 2017

The second edition of the event “Media in piazza – il bello dei media, senza paura” took place on October 26-27, 2017, at the new Palacinema in Locarno. As with the first edition, main goal of the event was to create a space where digital media and the network are used as tools for working and reflecting on our daily digital experience.

The topic of this edition was “Con la telecamera in tasca… e poi?“, to reflect on the use of pictures and videos in the daily life of students of primary and secondary schools in Canton Ticino.

About 780 students participated in the event.

eLab participated in the event, in collaboration with prof. Katharina Lobinger and Rebecca Venema, proposing an atelier on “Snaps, selfie e immagini… ho condiviso la mia foto, e adesso?“. The goal of this atelier was to help students reflect on using digital media with awareness, with a specific focus on images and videos. Students published their thoughts on the event’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Media-in-Piazza-2017-272867013229072/
