A new team for content creation at TRYSPACES


19 November 2020

As part of the research group’s new digital strategy, TRYSPACES is now on Instagram to reach young people in the four project cities. The goal of being on this platform is also to experiment a new digital space to create new content related to the research themes, as well as to adapt existing content that has been produced by the various field teams.

To ensure our presence on this platform, we have recruited local content creators who will produce weekly visual material to testify to the relationship of young people with public spaces in Hanoi, Mexico City, Montreal and Paris. The participation of this new team is the subject of a four-month pilot project that aims, on the one hand, to test the possibilities and limits of using Instagram to generate data in an academic research setting and, on the other hand, to create digital content in a more participatory and decentralized manner within the TRYSPACES partnership.

We are pleased to introduce our new local content creation team that you can get to know better by following our page: https://www.instagram.com/tryspaces_digital/.
