Beginning in Fall 2016, the project will recruit participants with the aid of AALV and CEDO for a series of participatory mapping workshops to explore the sense of place and perception of change due to resettlement within two of the primary refugee neighborhoods in Burlington: the Old North End and the neighboring town of Winooski. Two workshops will be held, one with recent refugees (arrived within the past ten years) and one with longtime residents (who have lived in these neighborhoods for at least ten years). The one-hour workshops will begin with a presentation of the broader goals of the project by the research team. Each participant will receive a map of their respective neighborhoods, and will be asked to annotate in response to two sets of prompts by the facilitators:

1) Important places and destinations (primary medical, shopping, groceries, community spaces, parks visited)

2) What indicates that refugees have been resettled in this space? (Signage, ethnic stores, community centers, different bodies (dress), new businesses)
