Trading Mercator Stories (TMS) is a locative media project set up around the multicultural neighbourhood of the Baarsjes in Amsterdam. It provides the Baarsjes community with an opportunity to create a media portrait of their own neighbourhood, offering them a platform where they can experience and exchange stories.

The final result is a location aware narrative experience, which takes place through GPS enabled smart-phones in and around Mercator Square.

Visitors will find themselves engaged in a treasure hunt, looking for stories and places in the real streets of De Baarsjes, discovering this multicultural and lively neighbourhood.
