Eco gaming: How feminism and play are key to changing the world

Patrícia Gouveia

This talk will show concrete experiences in gaming and speculative feminism to create awareness about the world we are living and to project future possibilities. Arts and design participatory strategies and a tradition of critical and interdisciplinary studies in humanities mediated by technologies helped shape these possibilities. Concrete playful projects will be considered to suggest the potential of these works to address complex problems and to stimulate innovation and research. Gaming research methodologies will be inquired to involve people in a common context. It will also show how collaborations can contribute to open spaces to a more integrated approach on the interests of people, and to promote a more sustainable and dynamic future
