At the various events of the W(here) Festival, certain artists and residents were asked to document their experience at various events in a field report. Many of the reporters were intimately involved in this project and so their perspective is incredibly valuable to new audiences happening upon this project in the future through this website.
The format of the report was up to its author and could have been a short written piece, a series of photographs, a reflection, a poem or maybe even a song! But the main idea would be to document this project in a number of ways, so that it would not live on solely through a single narrative of its organizers.
