Beyond Screens: Playable Theatre with Larping in Color

July 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PDT

With guests Dr. Rachael Cofield, PhD, Lawrence Moore and co-host Caro Murphy.


I’m a queer geographer writing about gentrification and queer life in Atlanta, Georgia. Throughout the last decade I’ve been a convention organizer, a starving academic, and an active larper. Currently, I’m a Director of Garden of Destinies LARP and the Director of Programs & Operations of Larping in Color. In both academic and non-academic spaces I’ve sought to increase accessibility and promote inclusion. In my free time (a hypothetical notion, really) I enjoy traveling, tabletop gaming, and ‘so-bad-it’s-good’ TV.

My name is Lawrence, and I’m a creative who likes to build things. I’m fascinated with the art and process of building something from scratch, and I love to find ways to express myself. I organize ‘The Pantheon LARP’ in Atlanta, and am the founder of LINC, an initiative to bring more representation for marginalized groups to immersive roleplay experiences.
