Broadgate Stories 2

SPACE Studios in collaboration with Ignite Creative have launched Broadgate Stories 2, a GPS triggered audio guide focusing on the iconic architecture of Broadgate, the City of London’s leading business district, renowned for its wide range of public art installations. 
Broadgate Stories 2 was created by young people from Hackney Community College aged 16 to 18 yrs, who were given the opportunity to gain entry level skills, and arts awards qualifications as they learnt about the technical secrets involved in the making of a mobile app. Participants created audio content by gathering on-site interviews, vox pops and ambient sounds, as well as creating their own poetry, music and stories that respond to the area. When visitors approach a particular artwork or building, the appropriate soundscape will play.
