TAG (Technoculture, Art and Games) will be hosting the first of two sessions of MICROTALKS on May 17 in our cosy online space on gather.town, with the second taking place on May 24. To keep online fatigue to the minimum, four members will be sharing their works during each session in the shape of super fast pecha-kucha style presentations.
Join us and get up to date on the research TAG members have been conducting this year. Speakers featured in this first session will talk about a wide variety of topics including, but not exclusive to: board-game creation, the anti-capitalist indie scene, romantic tandem gameplay, game preservation, and much more.
