Have you ever woken up and looked out the window to wonder… What does the future hold for Nottingham? Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies and 1525 Collective have teamed up to create a project aimed at turning these thoughts into a reality through the use of creative storytelling and worldbuilding using videogame creation and development software. We are looking for young people between the ages of 15 – 25 years old, no prior experience is needed, just an open mind and a sprinkle of creative flair and you’ll fit right in.
What will I be doing as a part of this project?
Over the course of this project you will be working with industry professionals in a number of face to face sessions hosted at Nottingham contemporary, these professionals will be hosting evening events designed to help applicants get a form grasp of game development and storytelling, we have the equipment, we have the facilities, we have the passion and the excitement… but the final ingredient we need is you.
This is your chance to work on a collaborative project and to work with like minded individuals in a safe space that only encourages creative and spontaneous ideas, a chance to explore what the future could hold for Nottingham… and then be a driving force in making that future a reality through game creation, storytelling and worldbuilding.
