The goal of the interactive storytelling event during the Mermaid SPLASH Festival is to revive forgotten stories about the Meadow Center where a quirky history of the town has been hidden, lost and nearly forgotten. It is to remind the community about the cultural and personal heritage of our shared places.
By allowing community members collaborate in drawing on the same workspace, they share the same canvas (walls and building), fill in the gap of forgotten stories and create a new one through a shared vision. This interplay empowers the diverse range of community members and strengthens the unity of their shared identity.
