"Places of Power"
Termite TV's "Places of Power" project amplifies the stories of marginalized communities in Philadelphia through immersive Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies. Termite TV invites viewers to experience disinvested neighborhoods in Philadelphia anew as a tapestry of knowledge, healing, and civic leadership. Their project engages lifelong community residents in immersive media and explores the questions: how does change happen in a neighborhood? Who are the people creating change? How can we use storytelling to amplify, sustain and learn from them? Through "Places of Power," Termite TV is threading together the people and spaces that hold power in the neighborhood but are often invisible.
