Networked Narrative: Northern Powerhouse 2065 Burnley Exhibition

  • 2 February 2016 - 27 February 2016


Starting in Burnley Central Library, this touring exhibition explores the future alternative reality with real world ‘artefakes’, bringing the online world into the physical. The objects on display range from emoji gloves to FutureGen lab swipe card, a bio injector and the sacred ‘book’. These items have been careful selected by curators from the future for you to encounter in the library.


The exhibition will also tour to Wigan and Hull libraries. Find out when the exhibition is near you. 


Accompanying this exhibition is Northern Powerhouse: Last Towns Standing, an online text adventure game made by Re-Dock with young individuals from across Burnley, Wigan and Hull. Play the game now.
