Here’s an opportunity to make a board game for Liverpool!
Urbingo is an interactive board game that enables people of all ages to join in a process of discovery and story-telling that leads them to seek out new and unexplored places in their city and at the same time find out more about the history of the place where they live.
Liverpool has some of the most amazing buildings of any city in the UK. The people who paid for, designed and built some of our historic landmarks have left the city a legacy that just keeps on giving. Engage Liverpool, a social enterprise working with residents who live in the city centre, wants to explore these buildings, their history and the fact that many of them are considered to be so significant UNESCO has declared them to belong to the cultural heritage of the whole world and named Liverpool a Maritime Mercantile City World Heritage Site.
Jekaterina Lavrinec, an Associate-Professor of Urban Studies at the Gediminas Technical University in Vilnius, will be visiting Liverpool to share with us her amazing project that connects residents and citizens with their heritage and built environment. She will be working with local residents to produce a game called Urbingo based on the city of Liverpool.
Engage Liverpool are running a course of workshops that gives anybody the chance to contribute their unique views on Liverpool to a one-off interactive board game that will give both residents and visitors the chance to engage with the city in an entirely personal way.
There will be ten workshops taking place between Wednesday 30th August and Saturday 2nd September in the morning, afternoon and early evening at Quaker Meeting House, School Lane. Anybody who would like to be involved is welcome to take part and only need to confirm their attendance by visiting: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/engage-liverpool-urbingo-project-workshop-tickets-36395148870
