TitleGames for Climate Action in the Arts: Exhibition, Design, and Performance
Presenter(s)Ray Lc and Vincent Ruijters
TimeThursday, October 13, 10:30a-11:30a
LocationSuperior Room
DescriptionAlthough the climate crisis is already upon on, our communication strategies for invigorating public action against the crisis is ineffective. Mandates and debates regarding policy and scientific details serve only to inflame the debate rather than produce positive action. Games and their manifestation in the arts have the potential to turn debate on the physical level to a human level intervention focused on how to align behavioral interventions with the goals of climate action. To provide a glimpse into current work in games in the art exhibition context for communicating and fostering climate action, we propose a diverse set of experts from curators to architects to renowned game designers who have worked intimately with games with themes and goals of climate action.
