We use interactive multimedia to bring to life the daily experiences of people around the globe as they strive to improve their lives.
Briefing Area – In the small theater situated by our entrance, visitors can view our seven-minute briefing video. Our youth groups usually convene here for classes and videos.
Case Studies – Our interactive touch screens present case studies of how local residents and agencies such as Mercy Corps work together to address specific challenges. We’re currently presenting four case studies: Climate Change in Niger, Land Rights in Guatemala, Conflict in Afghanistan and Governance in Indonesia.
Global Status Interactive – Bird’s-eye views of Mercy Corps programs across the globe are projected on a large screen using Google Earth. Visitors can zoom in for more information.
Story Sculpture – Visitors step up to one of our 30 iPods dangling from the ceiling to learn what communities and aid workers are doing – via slide shows, videos and news accounts.
Projection Wall – On a large screen, visitors see up-to-date information about, and photographs of, Mercy Corps hot spots – places where we currently have relief and economic development programs underway.
Response Wall – Before leaving, visitors are encouraged to jot down their ideas about innovation, peace, new discoveries or what they’d like to change.
