Innibos - Letters from the Future: Introduction
Background & Overview.
Thank you for taking part in our research project! We are grateful to have your involvement in imagining the future of the Innibos festival, by creating a 'Letter from the Future'. This activity is part of a research project called Future Festivals South Africa: Possibilities for the Age of Covid-19, and it has two aims:
- To provide a creative way to understand how people involved in Innibos have experienced the pandemic, and how they anticipate it will affect the festival in the next few years.
- To provide an opportunity for people involved in Innibos to creatively imagine new possibilities for the festival in the future.
The letters are an important part of our data set for this research project. The findings will be published in project reports and journal articles. You can read more about the research and ethical consideration of the project, in this information sheet. The Future Festivals South Africa project will also use these letters as the basis for collaboratively developing ideas – alongside our festival partners – for practical steps that could be taken to enable South African festivals to survive and thrive.
