fætures worldbuilding workshop With Alina Nazmeeva & John David Wagner

March 30 at 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In this workshop, we will play a worldbuilding game fætures. Playing this tabletop card game, you are invited to creatively envision speculative worlds through modes of collective brainstorming and individual imagination. The game enables you to work independently but never in isolation from your team, and everyone at the table has the same power to shape the world. You may envision a utopia or confront it with devastation. As your world comes into being, your initial straightforward conceptualization will transform into a nuanced, intricate, forking tapestry marked by negotiations, tensions, and unforeseen combinations. You are encouraged to think, design, and world-build outside of the box and go off the beaten path. fætures is intended to aid designers, writers, creatives, educators, strategists, creatives and students brainstorm and ideate worlds and entanglements in speculative scenarios. Led by U-M Faculty Alina Nazmeeva & John David Wagner

No prior experience needed. Participants do not need to bring computers. Snacks and beverages will be provided.
The workshop is a part of the XR/XF: Extended Realities, Extended Feminisms Project funded by the U-M Arts Initiative. The fætures game is developed by studio nawa (Nazmeeva & Wagner)
