Interesting multimedia project coordinated by a team at the University of the West of Scotland to recruit social reporters to cover the progress of the Olympic torch through Scotland. People are empowered and encouraged to create and upload content, to give a real picture of the journey. Mulitmedia and social media are used extensively, but simply. (via Ella Taylor-Smith)

#CitizenRelay is a participatory project which relies on the involvement of people from across Scotland to effectively report on the untold local stories and creative ways that Scotland’s citizens are interacting with the Olympic Games. We will be following the Olympic torch in the #citizenrelay bus from the 7th June onwards as it makes its way through Scotland.
