About this event

Note: This in-person event has a maximum capacity of 20 people. If you register and are later unable to attend, please cancel your registration via eventbrite.

As part of Arcadia 2021 "Small World", we welcome you to the Playable Cities workshop with special guest, Dr Lynn Love.

Join us on a chilly day for a wander outside in the real world, a hot cuppa and a play in a small world of our own making.

In this workshop, we will explore how we can use game design to make the real world a playable space for all. We will explore our relationship with public space, discuss ideas for regenerating underused areas and draw inspiration from examples of reinvented spaces in Dundee and beyond to design games in the real world.

Please note that this is a predominantly outdoor workshop - please wrap up warm and prepare for chilly weather. The start point will be emailed to participants within 48 hours of the start time. Should the weather be inclement, the workshop will be rescheduled for the new year.

All materials will be provided. We look forward to seeing you.
