DisinfoGames: Analog Game Jam

2023-05-19 @ 09:00 - 16:00

The Concordia University’s Disinformation and Games Research Project invites all members to join their upcoming analog game jam, DisinfoGames!

Event Description

This is a 2-day event taking place on Friday May 19th and Friday May 26th from 9-4pm. Participants will work in teams to create analog games around the theme of media disinformation. Through this creation process, we will identify current issues around the subject and reflect on the particularities of games as a site for–or tool against–false content.

Our game jam focuses on making analog, tabletop games (card, board, role playing games). Even if you’ve never made a game before, no worries! We’ll walk you through the process, the idea is to have fun, get creative and learn by making. We will provide all necessary supplies (crafting material, dice, tokens, etc.) and food and drinks will also be provided.

This is a free event and open to participants of absolutely all levels.

To sign up, email disinfogames@gmail.com.
