The Jonalana Project (Philipp Ehmann and Isley Lynn) present The Ministry of Betterment, a unique and playful performance which takes place on twitter and in real life at the Ignite Exeter Festival (3 - 9 June 2013). The work explores social media and its influence on our daily life and privacy by employing it to make playful interactive performances.

It was responsible for researching and improving the social and psychological well-being of the nation.  Now it’s highly-successful exercises are available to everyone via Twitter, and who knows, you may even make it to the Ministry Headquarters.

This immersive journey will have you travelling physically and digitally around the city, following instructions from The Ministry itself in the form of puzzles and games, in pursuit of a better Britain.  All you need is a Twitter account, a smartphone and a sense of adventure to take part.  Just make sure to be on your guard...
