CALL-OUT FOR PARTICIPANTS TO TAKE PART IN THE ISLAND

We’re looking for applicants from Coventry to take part in The Island, an online digital experiment this May-June.

Imagine you live on an island in the sea, not far from the mainland. You share the land with all kinds of people. How can you best protect the island and the islanders if a disaster strikes their land?

The Island is an exciting experiment in which a diverse group of citizens from Coventry democratically have to create a shared home on an island during various circumstances.

What rules do we need to ensure peace and tranquillity? At what price can prosperity be maintained?

This Spring 12 Coventry citizens - diverse in age, profession and cultural background - try to reach consensus via a series of digital meetings. When and why is solidarity needed? Take part and find out!

A short film of the experiment will be presented as part of the Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 programme.

Apply to take part by 10pm on Sunday 9 May.

Apply to Take Part
