The idea of using citizen participation to explore the relationship between people and the sea in port cities was developed from a central exhibition and research theme of the German Maritime Museum. A major inspiration was the location of our museum in a lively port city with an interesting, eventful history.
The funding provided by dive in. Program for Digital Interactions of the German Federal Cultural Foundation allowed us to develop the map in co-creative workshops as well as in discussions with experts from Bremerhaven. Users are now invited to help shape the map.
