Future DiverCities at Festival of the Future City

Festival of the Future City in Bristol, the largest public debate about the future of cities

Superact is hosting a workshop as part of the second Festival of the Future City in Bristol next month on 18 October.

The workshop will introduce Future DiverCities and the Divercities app to the city with the central question,

How would you culturally and creatively represent Bristol?

The Divercities app is a free mobile app aiming to stimulate discovery about the city through cultural recommendations. Content is created by citizens

Divercities app is devised by Future DiverCities Partner 1D Lab

for citizens, encapsulating a city’s creative and cultural heart in a series of content locations called ‘capsules’.

Divercities workshop

Led by Superact and 1D Lab, the free workshop will introduce participants to creating their own ‘capsules’ and share creative cultural landmarks from their city. From street art to statue, is there a creative or cultural landmark that symbolises your city? How can this be represented through existing digital content? How can this stimulate curiosity and enable discovery?

This is a free participative session that encourages attendees to consider their city from a different perspective, see it in a new light.
