‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ in Vancouver’s public spaces with the Active Fiction Project
If you try and break the door down, turn to page 20.
If you decide to return to the bus, turn to page 32.
The thrill of the choice, and the cringe when you choose the wrong door and your adventure…ends! The “Choose Your Own Adventure” book series are a favourite, where the author leads the reader down a winding path as they choose options of what to do, or what not to do, next. The Active Fiction Project brings this experience to life in the streets around Riley Park. Readers are invited to discover hidden stories as they wander about following the different possible storylines.
The Active Fiction Project is a collaboration between the Vancouver Public Space Network, local writers and some residents of Riley Park. The project brings literature into public space so you can explore a neighbourhood while stepping into a fictional story.
This is just a sneak peak of what’s in store. Over the next couple weeks we’ll be revealing more about the Active Fiction Project and when it’s time to ‘choose your own adventure’ in a Vancouver neighbourhood. Connect with us on the Project’s website www.activefictionproject.com, follow us @activfic and on Facebook, and spread the word #activefic
