Who Wants to Be...? hosted by The People Speak.

23 Oct 2009

As part of May You Live in Interesting Times, Festival of Creative
Technology, we have commissioned The People Speak to facilitate a
collaborative event where the audience writes a brief for a
technology-based commission. For a full programme of activities visit
the festival website: http://mayyouliveininterestingtimes.org.uk/

The £10 ticket fee is your ‘buy-in’ to voting - with another 199 people
- on how to spend the money. The game show format offers everyone the
chance to propose ideas, to discuss options (good, bad or just plain
outrageous), and then to vote on the new commissioning opportunity that
will absorb the entire evening’s box-office takings using an interactive
voting system.

Who Wants to Be...? is inspired by the ‘ask the audience’ feature of the
popular TV game show Who Wants to be a Millionaire?. In asking the
audience to set the questions, provide the answers and decide what the
rules are, Who Wants to Be…? gives people an insight into the
possibilities of their collective imagination.

Marvel as peoples wildest ideas materialise instantly on the cinema
screen, wait with baited breath as the votes come in live. And if you
don’t like the game, you can vote to change the rules. Previous
audiences have even come close to sacking the host! But whatever the
outcome -your terms and conditions apply…

Don’t worry if you’re a technophobe, you don’t need any knowledge or
experience of technology to participate.

This is a ticketed event. Tickets must be purchased in advance. See
below for booking information. ... read more
