5. Liberatory Story & Play at Tatamagouche Centre Nov 10-12, 2017 

with Game Designer Avery Alder

November 10-12, 2017 – Friday 5:30 pm to Sunday 5:30 pm


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 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 will 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.
