Best Festival Ever

Best Festival Ever is an interactive performance that enhances teamwork and communication, building skills in understanding and managing complex systems.

Using hands-on board game mechanisms, participants plan and manage their own music festival. Working together, the audience take control all the way from programming the bands to producing the final concert.

Developed with research scientists from University College London, the Stockholm Resilience Centre and CSIRO, the show explores concepts from Systems Science and Resilience Thinking.

Appropriate for policy-makers, businesses, conferences, management teams, community leaders, arts and festival audiences.

Over 2016-19, Boho Interactive was commissioned by the Earth Observatory Singapore, a research institution based at Nanyang Technological University, to produce a series of new games exploring natural hazards.

EOS brought Boho to Singapore to build a series of new games about natural disaster crises – volcanic unrest or an approaching typhoon.

Working with EOS scientists and designers Gillian Schwab and Julia Johnson, we created a series of games simulating the period from the first warnings of the disaster, to the event itself. Participants take charge of responding to the crisis, playing as local government, the media, emergency services, members of the community, or even as a volcano itself.

In early 2019, these games have been installed at the Singapore Science Centre, where facilitators present them for groups of secondary school students and the general public.

This work supports the EOS mission to use research on earth systems to foster safer societies. Players gain an appreciation of how earth science can help better inform decisions about keeping people safer in the face of natural hazards.

Recovery Capitals – ReCap

Recovery Capitals – ReCap

Recovery Capitals (ReCap) is a guide for people, organisations and governments managing emergency recovery. It was produced from research undertaken by the University of Melbourne and Massey University in New Zealand, with the support of the Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre. Australian Red Cross was the lead partner organisation.

The guide aims to support wellbeing after disasters by providing evidence-based guidance to aid decision making. It identifies seven areas of recovery – natural, social, financial, cultural, political, built and human – and emphasises the interconnectedness between them. It is targeted and practical, and can be applied to any type of emergency, large or small.

The guide has been created through an Australia-Aotearoa New Zealand collaboration, and there will be an edition tailored to each country, although both will have broader relevance to other locations.
