Capturing encounters
Identify how your event constitutes a forecast event, it’s location, artists you would like to include and how you would go about approaching them, into strategy and budget, marketing strategy, documentation, and any other outcomes.

Divide a speculative I’m with you forecast event
Make a proposal for a project that fits within the umbrella of forecast
Methods for thinking of future

How does proposal fall under umbrella
Artists you would like to include
How approach them
Pitch to bring artists
Logistical things e.g. Funding strategy, budget, marketing strategy
Devise performance that would sit in the event

My part of the homework

The concept is a bit like a murder mystery or escape game.

the audience is immersed in a story and travels around a location, following the journey/narrative/ story of characters

the participants have keypads with abc

sporadically there are pauses in the narrative where the participants are given choices regarding the outcome of events or decisions of the characters/story

for every correct prediction they audience is reimbursed some of their ticket fee

advertising in timeout, on escape game websites, murder mystery websites, ‘experience’ package sites like wowcher and groupon
