Press A to Consent: A conversation about consent and gaming
14:00 - 14:30
Consent is an ongoing conversation, as is most of what we experience when playing games. What we play has been preparing us to negotiate consent in our day to day lives, perhaps without us even realizing it. Games offer the opportunity for interactive education beyond any other medium and more and more developers are using this to improve images of sex and relationships in their games. Active decision making and consequences make for brilliant gameplay - and contribute to society at the same time. Learn about some of the ways consent can be included in your games and walk away with a few more on your 'To Play' list.
Wellington has long been a hub for the Kiwi arts and film communities, and now a growing number of videogame studios and indies are calling it home.
