Participatory Chinatown

Hub2, along with our community partners, the Asian Community Development Corporation and the Metropolitan Area Planning Commission, has been awarded a MacArthur Digital Media and Learning Award.  This project is a continuation of the work we started last summer in Allston, MA employing a virtual world platform to enable augmented deliberation in community meetings.  This opportunity provides some exciting new research challenges for us, as we begin to explore gaming components in the community meeting and dig more deeply into the qualities of augmented deliberation for civic engagement.
