Sense of (Municipal, Digital) Place: Connecting Concepts of Sense of Place to the Municipal Website of Philadelphia, PA
MetadataShow full item record
In an increasingly digital culture, people are adapting to the sourcing of information largely through web technologies. The world wide web has created a virtual environment, separate from our physical space, that in many ways can inform our interactions with our physical environment. There is great potential for the internet to serve as a tool for municipalities to encourage dialogue, visitorship, investment, and civic activity through their websites. As an aspiring arts administrator with an interest in placemaking, I approached Philadelphia's municipal website seeking to find out how I could access Philadelphia through this portal, as a potential resident and employee in the cultural sector. Throughout, I have sought to identify those aspects of the website that enable or hinder my ability to develop a sense of Philadelphia as a place to live and work.
