Atlanta Studies Winter 2017 Meetup

Date: February 6th, 2017

Time: 7pm

Location: Manuel’s Tavern, 602 N. Highland Ave.

Come see our progress on the Unpacking Manuel’s project and tell your stories about the Tavern. Manuel’s is a living archive of the history, culture, and politics of Atlanta. Over the next couple of years we will be collecting community memories and student projects to curate digital visualizations of the establishment before the renovation.

At the event, you will be able to try on an oculus rift so you can check out our Virtual Reality demo. We will have some google cardboards with us so you can experience the 360 video tour of the renovation on your phone. You can also see the high-resolution gigapan images of the Tavern’s walls we have completed.

Know something about the Tavern’s history or one of the artifacts on the wall? Have a memory about the bar you want to share? We will have several stations to record your stories.

The Plan:

7:00 – Grab some snacks (we will provide a few) and order a drink (that’s on you)
7:15 – A quick presentation about the project and future plans
7:45 – Explore the demos and share your stories
