Game Design for Political Engagement and Activism

07 March 2018

Video games can be more than 'just' entertainment. This study consists of workshops considering how games can be designed for political engagement and activism.

Workshops involve a mixture of discussions and presentations, but most importantly the chance to design a game about an issue important to participants, using tools developed as part of the researcher's doctoral work.

No prior knowledge of game design is required! Curiosity and enthusiasm is all you need!
