Where Do We Go Grom Here
A live action role-play (LARP)
Newcastle University, October - November 2017
Led by designer Jamie Harper, the project will use King’s speech as a springboard to consider issues that matter to us in 2017 and create a series of games and playful activities, leading to a final live action role-play piece which can be experienced by a secondary audience of public participants. Live action role-play (larp) is an emerging form of creative expression that combines performance with games and draws on various strands of participatory art. This project will establish a co-creative community of participants with the aim of generating artistic departures from our existing knowledge, towards new knowledge of the world, by playing together.
