Communication is one of the most important forms of human interaction. Assuming that games can encourage communication among total strangers the workshop in Nida intends to develop new games based on communication forms.
The analysis of the space, signs, rituals and habits will be done in the beginning of Cirrus express course.  Summarizing this data will help students working in groups of 3-4 to create new communication strategies in the public domain. Strategy based communication schemes/games will be created afterwards as well as their scenarios and visual communication parts. The aim of the workshop is to create new communication schemes/games in Nida public space.
These schemes/games will be tested among students, residents of Nida Art Colony and vacationers in Nida town.
