This month in Open Your Mind, we will dive into the world of video games and how major technological shifts such as increased access to broadband, social media & smartphones have influenced how they are designed, discussed and played.
Let us introduce you to the Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt exhibition (total excitement).
From Minecraft to League of Legends or No Man's Sky, this exhibition provides a unique insight into the design process behind a selection of groundbreaking contemporary video games as well as the rise of a new DIY arcade scene.
The exhibition will explore three themes :
Design: what it takes to make a video game.
Disrupt: how video games relate to society as a whole.
Play: the playful social role of video games.
For the first time, this event will exceptionally take place in a museum and we will have to pay to attend. So please be aware you’ll be charged £18 at the entrance.
Do you more info? Check out the V&A website.
As per usual, this event is for our members only (become one here) and isn’t limited in the number of people able to join us. However it’s important to book a seat so we can warn the V&A. The invitation email will land in your inbox on Tuesday 5th of Feb.
Please note that we are not sponsored by the V&A and that this event has been chosen for the sole purpose of providing our members a great experience. And a brilliant excuse to spend some quality time with strategists.
What is Open Your Mind?
We bring in (or visit) people who work in industries outside of marketing, like a gallery owner or clean wastage plant manager, to open our minds and gain different insight which we can implement in our own fields.
