Reimagining Neighborhoods with Board Game Making

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Game designers are experts at understanding, imagining and reimagining systems. In this workshop, game making will be used as a lens to examine the systems at work in our communities. Participants will learn the basics of game design, represent their own neighborhoods in DIY board games, and use these games to understand to the systems at play close to their own homes. By the end of the workshop, participants will have their own board games to share, along with insights on how game making can be used as a tool for social justice.
