Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Workshop: With Mateus Domingos

Sat 24th April, 2021, 10am to 11am

Mateus Domingos is an artist and writer based in Leicester. His work utilises games, 3D printing, fictional alphabets, maps and filmmaking to investigate themes of narrative, place, text, language and the use of new digital spaces.

Led by Mateus himself, the online workshop will provide a small number of creatives the opportunity to create their own choose-your-own-adventure style game through open-source software Twine. Mateus will demonstrate his own interactive fiction games and support participants through a beginners guide to game-making.

From this, a web-based community exhibition featuring the outcomes of the workshop, will be created and presented by Modern Painters, New Decorators.

The workshop will run over the course of three hours and will cover the basic principles of story telling and choose-your-own-adventure style game making, how to navigate Twine and an insight into the life of a practicing artist.


To take part in the workshop, participants will need:

  • Access to a device, laptop or tablet, to use for Zoom group video calls.
  • To be able to download the 'Twine' software or use it online.


Open Sauce is an online project by Modern Painters, New Decorators inspiring new skills to create art in any circumstance. The project encourages an energised approach to making, by celebrating the generous nature of digital communities.

Taking place across April and May 2021, the project will be delivered through Modern Painters, New Decorators online platforms and a web-based community exhibition as well as ticketed events including: Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Workshop, Create Your Own Digital Collage Workshop, Build Your Own 3D World Workshop and Open Sauce, an online talk night.
