Game research and art studio Studio Oleomingus’ Dhruv Jani lead a kaleidoscopic narrative design workshop, centered on the question: can interactive fiction operate as a powerful political tool? This workshop interrogated language, protest, bodies, and empathy in the games space. 


The workshop was structured into four exploratory parts:


  1. Introduction: Beliefs and practice
  2. Places, sites, and boundaries
  3. Bodies and identity
  4. Rituals and labor


Participants will leave with a storytelling prototype that they can develop into an analog or digital game.
