The Pilgrimage Project

The Pilgrimage Project is a multi-disciplinary collaborative ITEL experiment rediscovering the spaces of Georgetown’s campus. Our first focus was Old North, Georgetown’s oldest standing building. The Old North Pilgrimage Project is a reflective journey that takes its name from the universal pilgrimage tradition that cuts across faiths and cultures. We seek to cultivate a spirit of contemplation on the Georgetown University campus.

On April 22, 2016, Old North became a site of actual and digital pilgrimage, inspiring contemplation, awareness, and interaction. Exhibits and installations demonstrated the architectural, cultural and social changes to Old North throughout history. The overall experience was based on interactive technologies and artifacts where participants played, learned, and reflected on the different stories of Old North.
