I am running a playful jam as part of New Gamegrounds mini festival at De Brakke Grond in Amsterdam!
Sign up here!
Call for playful jam participants:
Join us in creating playful works during the New Gamegrounds playful jam at the Brakke Grond on 29 & 30 April 2015.
Get together with artists, designers and performers to experiment and create a playful work within an 18 hour timespan. Explore the intersection of play, performance and interaction together with a special focus on playful bodies. As one of the themes of the New Gameground evenings is agency and the ‘tyranny of the creator’, we are also interested to see the tension between creator and players in the projects.
By collaborating with game designers, performance artists, theater makers, interactive artists and others, you will be able to experiment with game rules, theatre settings, storytelling, interactivity and performativity.
The jam will take place at De Brakke Grond between 10:00 and 19:00 on Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 April 2015 with the possibility to join the evening sessions with talks from different speakers. The playful jam is part of the New Gamegrounds minifestival.
At the end of the jam on Thursday, the participants will be able to present their concepts, prototypes or finished works to the audience as part of the second talks evening from 20:00 – 22:00.
