Digital Bridges Workshop: Activist Game Design
1 p.m. Sat., Sept. 23, 2017
Interested in making games for social change?
Join Alexandrina Agloro, a media artist and assistant professor of interactive media and game development at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, for "Activist Game Design," a Digital Bridges workshop.
You will learn the mechanics of game design and how they can contribute to the ways we think about organizing and implementing activism.
Methods include participatory design, culturally relevant education, and utilizing archives. Interactive media and games will be showcased to highlight a framework of speculative design and how we can create change through our imagination.
Register here for the free, public workshop to be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017, in Forum, Digital Liberal Arts Lab.
Agloro is a media artist and Assistant Professor of Interactive Media and Game Development at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, game designer, community-based researcher, and media artist who believes in the possibilities of the decolonial imaginary using digital media as an emancipatory tool.
The program is sponsored by Digital Bridges for Humanistic Inquiry, the Department of English, and Grinnell Digital Liberal Arts Collaborative.
