Collaborate. Ideate. Create. Share
This 4 week, 12-session hackathon invites young people to work creatively and collaboratively as they design game-based solutions to a particular social problem. In groups of two to five participants, young people investigate a problem, explore the affordances of digital and non- digital games, and develop a game-based solution to the issue at hand. Technical skill-building workshops in the areas of digital art, sound design and game development are accompanied by seminars on: games for health; inspiring civic participation through play; the games for change movement; and persuasive games. The resulting projects may range from Android or IOS apps to board games, card games, geo-tagged games and anything else our participants dream up.
