Memories of Migration Kick-Off Meeting

On February 19-20, 2015, the Memories of Migration team held a kick-off meeting in Santa Ana, CA. Representatives for all partners were able to attend this two-day conference with the goal of laying the foundation on which to develop the project.


The Manny-Mobile
Day One started with Manny (Santa Ana, CA) shuttling the partners from their hotel to the Santa Ana Public Library.

After a bit of socializing and breakfast, we got to work on Memories of Migration.

Introduction Video
To kick-off the meeting, the Santa Ana partners played a short video created to explain what Memories of Migration is. The clip will be further developed into a commercial for CTV3, Santa Ana's television channel.

Schedule of Completion
We discussed our proposed schedule of completion from 2014 through 2017 and made any alterations necessary to aid in the timely delivery of Work Package components.


Day two consisted of a continuation of the Historypin workshop, a Youth Focus Group, and a discussion about Jump-Kit development.

Team Bonding
To close out our mini-conference, we created a sand mandala as a team bonding exercise.
