Over 2017 and 2018, we're working with students from 2 primary schools and 2 high schools to produce futuristic fiction of the multimedia and multi-dimensional variety.
For primary school students, the 'Audio Futures' workshops will see students build from resource material to imagine their world in 2050, creating audio podcasts to provide a tour of their fantastical future.
For high school students, 'The Atom Project' workshops will see students write cli-fi (climate fiction), imagining the types of challenges and obstacles the future might hold. Students will be supported to utilise digital formats to present their story, using audio and imaging softwares.
Last term we worked with Belmore Boys High School, hypothesising about what the future might be like, and debating topics like artificial intelligence, extinction of species, super viruses and more! Building on that fantastic start, we'll be continuing this program in 2018 with students from Liverpool Girls High, as well as primary school students from Belmore South Primary and Plunkett Primary.
Stay tuned! Who knows what the future will bring!
