Heritage Futures and Future Heritages: Heritage Futures Lunch and Game
Register at https://heritage-futures-lunch.eventbrite.com/
Heritage Futures invite you to participate in a game of future-making over lunch.
Heritage is a form of future-making, as decisions and practices relating to heritage – be it objects, places, practices – transmit it into worlds-to-come, ensuring that its presence will have a influence on the composition of those future worlds. Over lunch, the Heritage Futures team invites guests to reflect on future-making while playing an imagination card game – The Thing From the Future – in which you will build future scenarios and imagine the things contained within them.
Over a networking lunch, you will be invited to play this simple and engaging game and observe it being played. You will be encouraged to reflect on how the game touches your own experience of heritage as a future-making practice, and will have an opportunity to meet and talk with fellow players.
There are 100 places for the lunch event, available on a strictly first come-first served basis via Eventbrite ticketing to registered participants in the ICOMOS GA and Scientific Symposium. Please arrive promptly where we will tick your name off our list at the door. In order to make sure that places are met, Heritage Futures will open the event to a standby list should capacity not be achieved by 13:15.
The Thing From The Future is a game originally developed by situationlab.org and modified for this event by Heritage Futures.
This lunch and workshop activity is hosted by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funded Heritage Futures research programme, on which the IUCN World Heritage Programme and ICOMOS are amongst more than 20 institutional partners (see www.heritage-futures.org for further information).
Please note that Heritage Futures will use the emails provided to contact lunch attendees following the ICOMOS General Assembly and Scientific Symposium to ask a few simple questions about how the activity influenced their thoughts about heritage and may have impacted on their practice.
PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT IS ONLY OPEN TO THOSE REGISTERED TO ATTEND THE ICOMOS GENERAL ASSEMBLY AND SCIENTIFIC SYMPOSIUM IN DELHI.
