We invite you to take part in a collaborative online zine workshop with Daria Tommasi on Saturday, 6 February, at 16.00. Workshop participants will be asked to answer imaginary situations and develop short narratives by drawing a cartoon and writing a sentence describing what would happen.
“What if …” something crazy and unexpected happened and turned your daily routine upside down?
The players will be involved in the process of collective writing, in which every choice they make will influence the whole narrative. After they send their contribution to the game master, the participants will receive another “what if” sentence that another player had written. Their task is to continue the story with another cartoon, then scan it and send it back to the game master. Every action must be done within 15 minutes.
The final goal is to create a collaborative narrative with several contributions by each participant. The stories will be collected in a game-zine that the participants will be able to print at home or pick up at the DobraVaga Gallery. The zine will also be included in the DobraVaga zine library.
To take part, please register by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 February. You will receive further instructions and details about the workshop via e-mail.
The event will be held in English.
