“Don't make games for the community,
help the community to make games for themselves”
- Scott Nicholson

During this playful and energetic session, you will get to try various games such as Turtle Wushu, Massive Multiplayer Thumb-Wrestling and maybe the (almost) famous Danish Clapping Game.
We will also engage in an intense “play jam”, where participants get together in small groups to create a game or play activity in a short amount of time. You will learn how how easy it is to start making very simple, yet very engaging games and play activities in a way that can easily be adopted in most settings.  
The session is framed as a conversation about the role playfulness as a catalyst for transforming libraries

Organizer:
Mathias Poulsen:       
I aim to create a movement towards a more playful world inhabited by more playful people. I believe this is an essential part of making the world a better place, locally as well as globally.
I Founded the CounterPlay Festival, which took place at the old site of the main public library in Aarhus in 2014 and is entering DOKK1 in April 2016. The festival aims to cultivate a diverse community of people to explore and facilitate playfulness from different perspectives and in different domains. 
Upon two successful festivals, we have just founded CounterPlay as an NGO to support playful activities and interventions throughout the year and to build much stronger playful communities
