The group spent some time on the beach making pictures with the stones. You can make your own picture below by dragging pebbles onto the sheet of paper.

Finally the group made maps and lists of places they see everyday, and also places that are important to them and their identity.

Through WhatsApp the group document places that define the city to them and shared them with each other as they walked around photographing their personal landmarks.
