Critical Tourism | Group 3
For the last week’s discussion, our group have more specific goal for this project.
Birmingham is a strange city in my opinion, no one can say it is bad or good expressly. Before coming to Birmingham, I have lot of imagines for this city. But the reality is always cruel, I don’t know why the sky in this city is always grey and the air we breath is always dignified.
However, the day and day has passed, I slowly like Birmingham. Although I can not tell why. I think there are lot of people think like me.
So for people can know more about this city, our project will approach those information.[below]
City urban myths with some ‘fake news’.
Show the forgotten history and layering through time of Birmingham (not entirely factual).
Blend the historical images of Birmingham with those of today (not all images entirely of Birmingham).
Celebrate ‘self deprecation’ and our ability to be critical about our city by having a quiet joke with the tourists.
Celebrate the accent so often mocked by translating the guide phonetically on one side into ‘Black Country’.
Celebrate what we are proud of and perhaps cleverly alter aspects we are not so proud of.
Images of the site [part of it]
we want to show the historical process of Birmingham to let people know more about this city.
