Activism through video games: how streaming and video games can help power-up your cause

None
With this workshop, we aim to show examples of how activists can use video games as a tool for reaching out to new audiences and leverage their causes amongst them. As an interactive narrative media, video games present an unprecedented potential for empathy that can be harnessed into grass-root activism. Session will provide an overview of how video games connect with human rights through real examples, and then move on to collaborative brainstorming on ideas on how game mechanics and streaming can be used for engagement.
