Rebuild Brighton: water group

Sat 9 Sep • 13:00 – 15:00

Brighton Palace Pier
City Centre

Organised by:
  • University of Sussex
  • Suitable for: 16+

    In a post-apocalyptic Brighton, following environmental disaster, critical infrastructure is destroyed. Using maps and clues left by the city planners a handful of survivors set out to find what is still standing and what can be rebuilt. Survivors desperately need energy, water and communications. But resources are scarce. Can all the survivors come to an agreement on what infrastructure is needed the most?

    You are booking tickets for the group tasked with rebuilding Brighton’s water infrastructure. This is one of three groups solving clues from across the city and planning how to provide survivors with water. At the end of the trail the three groups will come together to negotiate which infrastructure to build. The meeting point for the water group will be Brighton Pier (please meet at the steps to the right, facing the pier walk). Please be aware that the event will start with a short visit to the sewers and for health and safety reasons participants need to be wearing long trousers and closed shoes. People wearing shorts, skirts, flip-flops or open toe shoes won’t be able to join the tour.

    Participants will be given a map, instructions and clues to follow one type of infrastructure and to learn about the infrastructure needs of the city in terms of that specific infrastructure. Clues will be based on historic and current infrastructure and can include physical infrastructure assets, as well as scientific facts.

    Event booking has closed for 2017. We hope you enjoyed the Festival. Join us next year!
