Laurisilva Futures

In the context of the Future Fabulators project, Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute conceived and designed a locally inspired context-aware transmedia story. Drawing inspiration from a creative writing workshop and future scenario session, they developed a fictional story around two central themes: the past-present-future impact of human settlement on a particular ecosystem, in this case the centuries-old ‘living lab’ and UNESCO-protected wilderness of Madeira; and the healing properties of local flora as explored in folk remedies.

Laurisilva Futures workshop invites its participants to imagine future scenarios for the Laurel forest and its entanglement with humans. The workshop is facilitated by M-ITI and FoAM.
