Your city is changing fast. We invite you to join one of a series of short workshops in January 2018 to explore the part you can play in these changes. You will use wearable technology (technology worn on your body) to sense your movements and gestures as you move around the streets of Manchester. In participating, you will be co-creating audio and digital content for an outdoor performance and public exhibition together with artist in a project commissioned by FutureEverything and Cityverve.

We will be asking you to consider your relationship to the city, to technology, to your visions for the future, and we will join together in inventing a language of SUPERGESTURES that embodies our collective contributions to the future of Manchester.

SUPERGESTURES is a language of body gestures created by individuals, as well as the massive meaningful gesture expressed simultaneously by the many. How will SUPERGESTURES empower you to take action in your city?
