We teamed up with cultural researchers, designers, programmers and analysts to study responses given by 3633 participants in over a dozen local events, and analyse tens of thousands of posts published in social media and web-based information services. What we present below is a 12-point list of things to look out for in the exhibition and report summarising our project.
