All of the activities of Circle 10 during Summer Session 2022 were dedicated to heritage studies. A board game’s form was chosen as a tool to reflect changes with Curonian Spit, where the advancing sands captured entire villages and their inhabitants were trying to resist. One example of burried village is reflected in the poem “Sunken Village” by Ludvikas Reza, where the death of a place was discovered. In contrast, Nida is an example of a survived settlement, which changed its geographical location several times to escape from the advancing sand dunes.
The board game is a prototype of actual changes on the spot. Playing the game, you could choose your role, including playing as a villiger or sand dunes themselves. The game was meant to have variations of its development from a complete victory of the elements (sand dunes or forest landscape) to the triumph of human skills.
The idea: Anna Titova-Tubash, Serj Tubash.
Coordinator of the circle: Alina Kalachova.
