[Encore] Festival Premium Content – Finalist Session: Empathy as Activism

February 10, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PST

Activist games have long been a favorite in indie circles, especially games that connect activism to personal experience. What does it mean to create games as a form of protest and activism? What are the unique properties of games that motivate gamemakers to explore themes of social, racial, economic, and environmental justice through interactivity? How can we use empathy and agency to bring new perspectives to the table?

A.M. Darke, Emily Turner, Danny Hayes, Z, Bob De Schutter, Celia Pearce
