On April 16-18 2015, the international conference ‘Play / Perform / Participate’ of the International Society of Intermedial Studies was hosted by Utrecht University.
Now that the summer school is over, I feel the need to make an extra blog post about the SPAT GAME JAM we organized as part of the summer school. In co-organizing the summer school, the game jam was kind of my baby, and I am very proud how it turned out. In collaboration with Karel Millnaar (HKU, HvA), Annakaisa Kultima (University of Tampere), Jussi Holopainen (GEElab Europe) and Keimpe de Heer (HKU) we took over Rotslab in Utrecht for a weekend, what a ride!
To some the idea of being cooked up in a classroom for two weeks in the middle of August might not be the perfect idea of spending summer. But for me, I enjoyed every moment of it! The summer school was beyond expectations.
Good news! I just found out that my article will be published in Magazine/#8 The Age of Play, an ebook published by the New Media Studies Master Program at Utrecht University. This is a shortened version of the article that will be published later this year in a special issue of ToDiGRA. Read the article here.
