Creating Playable Spaces with Code Liberation

Tuesday, April 23, 2019, 6:00 - 8:00 pm
291 Church Street, NYC

What are the keys to creating successful playable spaces? What kinds of digital play experiences work in physical environments? This workshop explores research in experience design, architecture and embodiment within play. Together, we will brainstorm and storyboard an embodied experience. Also, we will discuss critical interventions and provocations using the body and play in public space.

Phoenix Perry creates physical games and user experiences. As an advocate for women in game development, she founded Code Liberation Foundation. In her role at Goldsmiths, University of London, she lecturers on Physical Computing and games and leads an MA in Independent Games and Experience Design.

Code Liberation catalyzes the creation of digital games and creative technologies by women, nonbinary, femme, and girl-identifying people to diversify STEAM fields. Learn more at http://codeliberation.org/ RSVP Here.

SoHo Arts Network includes over arts and cultural organizations located in this historic downtown neighborhood. Created in 2015, partially in response to the misperception that SoHo has lost its arts community, the network provides an important platform to increase awareness of the neighborhood’s continued importance as an arts district, especially for non-profit organizations. The network facilitates and reinforces collaboration between institutions and artistic leaders within the area, and the sharing of best practices. In addition, the network seeks to further ignite the growth of the arts in the neighborhood through public programs and events exploring SoHo’s rich cultural history.
