Networked Narrative: Northern Powerhouse 2065 Wigan Exhibition

  • 1 March 2016 - 2 April 2016


Having started in Burnley, 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.


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.
