Takes place during Uroboros Festival 2021

This workshop invites the first public interaction with the Glossary, a radically open, fluid and changeable, interactive interface for giving meaning to a lexicon of terms related to creative practice and transformational change. Participants will play language-generating and meaning-making games in a relaxed, collaborative online space.

CreaTures Glossary thinks of language as belonging to no one in particular and to everyone at the same time. Reference works like dictionaries, glossaries, and thesauri usually give an elite group of experts the authority to assign meanings to words, even though language is a dynamic social thing. The CreaTures Glossary meets language where it lives — in social situations. It tries to give users access not just to use words in new ways, but also to be heard and understood while doing so.

The Glossary is currently being developed in collaboration with the CreaTures project. Participants will play language-generating and meaning-making games in a relaxed, collaborative online space. It is also a chance to give feedback on the interface, which is under development. Anyone can participate; there are no required skills or experience. Artists, creators, and people who use more than one language are especially encouraged to attend.

If you would like to attend any festival event but can’t pay the fee, the organizers will gladly waive it for you, just please contact them at festival@uroboros.design.
