Upcoming events

Chorlton teenagers: the future needs YOU to imagine it
Come to Chorlton Library on Thursday 23rd May from 3.30-5.30pm to co-create a futuristic Chorlton using Fortnite (creative mode) and Playstation Dreams (early release version).

Working from a current map of Chorlton, we will co-develop a futuristic city of your dreams and nightmares. We will draw, build models and write stories that imagine future scenarios using these well-known gaming platforms and the game engines behind them such as Unity 3D and Unreal.

No experience necessary, this is a ‘hack’ where we make it up as we go along…

This dropin event is curated by Dr Jessica Symons, Fellow at University of Manchester and Director of Visioning Lab.
