The mother of zedding’s handy tips

As we mentioned at some point before, Rosie the inventor of Zedding has been getting students to do random urban wanders.

She prepared a nice set of questions which kind of sum up the stuff we look for when zedding:

  • How do people use public space in the city?
  • Who is present or absent?
  • How do the different urban spaces make you feel?
  • What messages are present? (e.g. graffiti/advertising/political debate)
  • Are there any signs of ‘sacred space’?
  • What was the most surprising thing you saw or heard?
  • Did anything make you laugh?
  • What was the strangest conversation you had or overheard?

    We had a lot of fun exploring Manchester with these questions! Some of them were taken from a module Matt did in Urban Theology, so I can’t take all the credit for them 🙂

    I think a lot of people go zedding without realising it. I stumbled across this link http://www.latourex.org/latourex_en.html – whoever wrote it is an experienced zedder! Lots of creative ideas.
