Title: Sense of (Municipal, Digital) Place: Connecting Concepts of Sense of Place to the Municipal Website of Philadelphia, PA
Author: Arnold, Teresa
Abstract: 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.
