Liberatory Story & Play 2017

  Nov 10 - Nov 12, 2017 Fri 5:00 PM - Sun 6:30 PM $375.00

Game designer Avery Alder will introduce participants to tabletop roleplaying games and the transformative power of play. Exploring themes ranging from queer heartbreak to post-apocalyptic community to daring skyship adventure, participants will dive into playing a number of these games. Avery will highlight how different games can be used as tools for better understanding ourselves, our relationships, and our collective struggles. Along the way, there will be conversations, skill-building, and time for reflection in break-out affinity groups. Everyone will leave with the resources and knowledge to run games in their own communities. Learn how roleplaying games can be a force for reflection, transformation, and community! 

Liberatory Story and Play is a weekend residential program to equip community leaders, youth, and support workers with unique tools for exploring and addressing issues of marginalized identity, community mental health, and collective struggle in a diverse and complex world.
