“one day you chase me out of an area with a gun, the next day you bring me a gatsby!”
How to deconstruct, visualise and dialogue around gang-related violence in townships, towards finding new possibilities to enforce cycles of positive impact? Exploring complex systems with mapping: geographic, time, strategic, perspectives, ideas with different voices in community. Identifying negative cycles of impact and finding solutions for “dark spots” identified in mapping, strengthen the role of communication & the individual. Towards finding new methodology and processes for communities to strategise new possibilities that will enforce positive cycles of impact.
