Dungeons & Dragons
Developing social skills, group dynamics & leadership
A Dungeons & Dragons campaign played over 5 sessions (2 hours each) in which participants can learn and explore group dynamics, leadership and social skills in a fun fantasy setting. Role playing games allow us to express ourselves in safe and non judgemental ways and help form connections within a group! This program is typically suited to groups of 4-8 participants, 14 and older. Games can be played in person or remotely via web browser.
A series of practical workshops introducing participants to some key concepts for planning, designing & developing games using free and accessible tools. The workshops explore teamwork, concept development, prototyping, assessing scope, choosing the right tools, creating assets, iteration, testing, user experience and marketing. Participants will come away from this workshop with a greater understanding of the development lifecycle, practical skills and a potential pathway to explore their interest in making games.
