Using mobile urban interventions, sound and creative immersion this workshop will engage the human, nonhuman, algorithmic and environmental convergences of our cityscape to co-design a megagame that re-connects players across the Melbourne CBD with waterways. Players will explore the relationship between water and urban environments using interactive mobile mapping technologies to reimagine the city and its inhabitants as a city of water.

Join Troy Innocent, Anna Hickey-Moody, Fiona Hillary and Dan Green in a co-design exercise playfully and poetically reframing Melbourne’s relationship with water.

Schedule for Friday, 20 March and Saturday, 21 March: 

9–11am: Workshop at MPavilion
1–3pm: Various locations along the river (the meeting point for the tour is at MPavilion at 12pm)

This event is presented in collaboration with Melbourne Design Week.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
