Grassroots Media Conference March 2 NYC

by Mary Flanagan · , 11:32 am

This Sunday in NYC, Hunter College is hosting The 5th Annual Grassroots Media Conference!
The Conference is a chance for media activists to come together, compare notes, and stratagize. It’s always worth attending. This year, the Tiltfactor Lab will be facilitating a game design workshop

to help participants better understand how to analyze existing games and consciously embed values in their own games.

How do even simple games embody human values? How can activists plan to create new games which feature a strong ethos? The workshop, “Grow-a-Game!”, uses new tools developed to help novices and experts alike make socially responsible games. Tiltfactor, the first social activist computer game lab in the country, will host this workshop in order to introduce activist groups to the process of creating games for social change and social justice issues. No experience in game design required! 10 am on March 2nd, 695 park ave North Building (68th @ lexington), 5th floor.
