If you’re like me and consider the city to be a playground, then I’d love to have you join me in two weeks at the Waag for the first Best Scene in Town workshop. The aim of this event is to explore the potential of location-based media in the city. We’re looking for participants with ideas or a vision around this topic; game designers, interaction designers, architects and people with a passion for city life.
Waag Society’s Ronald Lenz has invited me to give a short talk on what the future of the city looks like through the eyes of a game designer. I’m very pleased to be joined by Martijn de Waal of The Mobile City who’ll do the same from an urbanist perspective. During the workshop you’ll get the chance to prototype your idea using the accessible and easy to learn 7scenes platform.
Participation is free of charge. The event takes place on april 14 at Waag Society’s Theatrum Anatomicum (Nieuwmarkt 4, Amsterdam, NL). For a full schedule head over to the event’s page at events.waag.org.
