A gamification and walking arts workshop at the PlayOn – Hope! 2022 online conference – Monday to Wednesday 4-6 April 2022.

Walk and write the word “Peace” all over the world, exploring locative media and the city as a canvas, the body as a pencil and the city as a body.

During the workshop “Alphabet of the City” we gamify a map, for peace, and we offer a one week trial of CGeomap to build yourself a mini-project.

Check out as well the full and free online program between 4-6 april, diving deep into digital technologies which expand the spaces of theatre and attract new audiences.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
