Journey to the Sinking Valley (Meet me on Google Earth) / Myth-building workshop


Nomad invites local artist Abby Quick to run a virtual myth-building workshop exploring themes of place and hyperreality in the techno-sublime, or to dream of elsewhere.

Through a series of wayfaring tasks, participants assume the roles of cyber-voyagers, archaeologists of collective memories, scribes for possible futures, techno-folklorists, or something in-between. The objective of the journey is to unfurl possible and future mythologies, with resulting works  as artefacts from these mirrored worlds.

Free to attend, dreaming encouraged and no prior myth-building experience required.

Travellers may book through Eventbrite, and will receive a link to join a webinar platform prior to the event.
