‘Choose Your Own 'Ad'venture!’ A workshop on how digital violence affects queer people, and our strategies of resistance.
Queer people, and other marginalised communties often feel like we’re mere pawns - online and offline - in a game we didn’t design, with unfair rules, and no instruction manual. So instead, here's a game we *did* design. We’ve devised a toolkit harnessing the power of art and the world-building capabilities of games. For this hands-on session, you have to print out the 'Choose Your Own Adventure' tool kit available in the link below, print it out, and bring the physical copy to the session, along with glue and a pair of scissors. The toolkit’s based on real stories from queer people - we invite you to walk alongside the characters and stop at the crossroads of their decisions; to generate a larger conversation with perspectives from around the globe, and share strategies of resistance.
