Flanagan honored with Vanguard Award from Games for Change
Tiltfactor’s director Mary Flanagan was honored at the 13th Annual Games for Change Festival in June 2016!
Flanagan was awarded the Vanguard Award. This award recognizes the significant contributions of a practitioner by being a champion, advocate, and mentor for a new generation of game creators, and rewards outstanding individuals in impact games.
The Games for Change Festival organizers noted that Flanagan is:
“… A leading innovator, artist, educator and designer, whose works have included everything from game-inspired art, to commercial games that shift people’s thinking about biases and stereotypes. Flanagan established the internationally recognized game research laboratory Tiltfactor in 2003 to invent “humanist” games and take on social change through games.”
