Play Safe: Game Arts During a Plague
Luca Carrubba (Spain/Italy) is in the process of curating an exhibition during the pandemic. How do you showcase interactive work that’s meant to be touched in a time when this can spread contagion? Game organizers and creators Chad Toprak and Helen Kwok (Australia) will be sharing their learnings after having designed multiple socially distanced games. Then we will be inviting all attendees to share their biggest challenges, related or unrelated to COVID. Hosted by Heather Kelley (USA).
This year GAIA is being produced by Luján Oulton (Game on! El arte en juego) and Marie Claire LeBlanc Flanagan and Jim Munroe (Game Arts International Network). Thanks to our session partners the Canadian Embassy, the Italian Cultural Institute, the Goethe Institut, and our symposium partner the Ontario Arts Council.
