Fortnight is about how experience creates meaning; and how a small change in perspective creates a massive change in outlook; a bespoke exploration of where we live and how we go about our daily lives.

Fortnight is a bespoke experience for people who live in Nottingham postcodes NG1, NG2, NG3, NG7, NG8 and NG9. It is a project that invites you to playfully interact with the place you live and to experience what it is like adding a new perspective to the daily grind. And don’t worry you won’t have to do anything you don’t want to. Between 8 June and 21 June, participants will be invited to daily explorations of what it means to be here now. You will need a working mobile phone (from any country), an email account that you check semi-regularly, a good deal of curiosity and a healthy dose of playfulness. Along the way, you’ll be given lots of treats, you’ll meet people, and you’ll find your own way to make sense of what the project gives to you. You should keep the 14th and 20th June clear in the evening in your diary.
Fortnight is not a play, it is not a game, there is no story, but there is a lot of magic involved.
This is what others have said about the project when it was done in another city:
“I loved Fortnight . It was intimate, surprising, intriguing and began to be a lovely part of my daily life. I liked being invited to walk, find, ponder, view, write.”
“The feel of the whole experience was very thoughtful, generous and gave a different perspective to the world which I very much enjoyed.”
“I found the project fantastically inventive and inspiring.”
“I loved being spoken to individually and having that ‘one to one’ relationship. It was a rare invitation to participate on an equal footing with the artists creating the event.”
“A little gem of a project.”
Fortnight is powered by Proto-type and will be coming to other cities across the UK in the future.
