Explore our collection of rich cultural artifacts, on loan from Inbound natives and artists in residence alike. Whatever your interests, you'll find our Welcome Center an excellent stop for information, and our beautiful land just waiting to be discovered! +++ Discovered and mapped since 2008, the formal bridge to the Inbound Lands was released in 2013 as a free, online, Interactive Fiction game. Using a text-based story that alters based on player feedback, The Inbound Lands draws readers and gamers into a literary adventure. As a literary platform, The Inbound Lands is as dynamic as its desert is vast: the game regularly incorporates real life puzzles and locations to supplement gameplay, builds new areas based on player and real world interaction, and engages "artifacts" and art objects that bring a new level of worldbuilding into the player environment. The Welcome Center at Montgomery Bell Academy is more than just an exhibit: it is an expansion of the world behind the game, and an invitation to generate and alter the desert with your own footsteps. Visit The Inbound Lands online at heretherebe.com, and visit The Welcome Center at Montgomery Bell Academy, in Nashville, TN, from January 28th to February 25th, 2015. +++ Megan Kelley is an maker, doer, thinker, writer, curator, illustrator, builder, tinkerer, designer, dreamer, laugher, happier living in Nashville and open to conversation.
