Gameplayarts is participating in the Now Play This Game Design Labs. April’s Now Play This Festival investigated the concept of liminality, from shifting borders to digital histories. Continuing some of the insightful discussions started there, the Game Design Labs will delve deeper into how games can be used to explore the in-between spaces, both for players and developers. Combining a creative conference and a game jam, the Labs use practical making as a method for experimentation and investigation. 

In the spirit of exploring the in-between spaces of game design, we're thrilled to invite our community to take the stage (virtual or IRL at our project space) for a series of 5-minute "microtalk" presentations. This is your chance to share something you're passionate about - whether it's a game-related project, an unconventional artistic idea, or a completely unexpected topic.

The only limit is your imagination! This is a unique opportunity to spark new connections, uncover hidden synergies, and push the boundaries of what's possible at the intersection of games, art, and culture. So come prepared to captivate, inspire, and challenge your fellow attendees. Who knows what unexpected insights and collaborations might emerge when diverse perspectives collide?

Don't miss this exciting moment to showcase your creativity and join the conversation around the limitless potential of liminal game design. Sign up to give a microtalk and get ready to leave a lasting impression! Or come and attend to hear others!

Logistics

Dates: June 27th, 7pm PST Online and in-person.

Format: Online webinar via Zoom and in-person. If you'd like to give a talk, you'll receive additional details.

Experience Level: Beginners! Previous creative experience in another field (i.e. architecture, design) is helpful but not necessary. This event is designed explicitly for adults but is fine for all ages.

Additional Info: Please review our Code of Conduct here. Email info@gameplayarts.org for any questions.
