Renewing Musrara Neighborhood
The Musrara neighborhood comes to life with VR and hologram technologies
Intel, in collaboration with the Young Jerusalem Center, a licensed community manager and community, has created a technological and innovative experience that tells the unique story of the Musrara neighborhood of Jerusalem, in an innovative-community way.
The project is innovating together - Intel is partnering to create connections between engineers, residents and technology in the urban spaces. In collaboration with the community, Intel develops solutions to community challenges by transforming the space into innovative and technological.
The 'Renewing Musrara Neighborhood' project in Jerusalem is intended to make the inspiring story of the social activists and creative entrepreneurs active in the neighborhood to new audiences - visitors from Israel and the world overcrowding the fascinating neighborhood.
The exciting collaboration between Intel, the community, neighborhood residents and students from the city's education system has created a hybrid storytelling experience that allows Musrara to experience the new and unique spirit.
As part of the experience, visitors are scouring various elements in the neighborhood using their mobile devices - playing videos made with special technology. Additionally, applicants can watch Simon Levy's hologram of the Black Panthers operating in the neighborhood. The residents themselves and high school students in the city (Experimental and Evelina de Rothschild) were active partners in creating the videos.
Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Leon: "Technology connections between old and new are the future of us all. I am very proud of the development that allows residents and guests of the Musrara neighborhood to understand the local history that shaped a part of urban history. The solution that they made at Intel is both simple and brilliant. I invite everyone to come and get to know the neighborhood story so special. "
Eldad Weil, CEO of the Young Jerusalem Center and Licensed Community Administration: "Together with Intel and with the community, we have created a technology-community experience that no longer exists. The Musrara neighborhood has always been renewed and revitalized, and today we have added a another floor, a new one on top of an old one. "
On Sunday, November 3, the ceremony was launched in the presence of Jerusalem Mayor Mr. Moshe Leon and Intel Israel CEO Yaniv Gerti.
The entire public is invited to participate in the experience.
