In this four-week program, students will have an opportunity to build a digital story that indicates the work undertaken and the focused mission for the University of Pittsburgh's Hill District Community Engagement Center. As we partner with the CEC Hill District we will learn about the evolution of the organization's relationship to residents of the Hill District, its mission to attend to needs in the community and the evolution of the organization in the context of the Hill District's cultural and political history.

This poster reports on the Politics of Power & Place learning experience, funded by the Year of Data and Society. In this collaborative making experience, students learned about concerns that arise in the making and circulation of digital storytelling in relation to other analogue forms of communication. They considered the legacies of ownership and histories of displacement in the Hill District in the name of urban renewal. They also explored how this experience compares to other examples of political and cultural displacement in locations like Cape Town, South Africa and Belfast, Northern Ireland.
