Speaking

I am available as a visiting lecturer and conference speaker on games, performance, playful things and community interaction/participation, and have been known to go on a bit about politics in most spheres.

I regularly speak at events such as EMF Camp, V&A Lates, Penguin Random House, Feral Vector, GameCity, AMAZE international festival of videogames, Hide and Seek’s Come Out and Play, the Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol, Audiences NI, Shift Happens, TedXYork etc.

I run workshops around participative performance, story collecting and game design for universities and arts organisations – e.g. Theatre in the Mill, ARC Stockton, Northern Stage, UAL, UEL, University of Chichester, RCSSD, Loughborough University, Goldsmiths.

I have lectured at Chichester University, City University London, the TaPRA annual conference, Aberystwyth University, the University of Kent, Leeds Met University, RCSSD, Nottingham Trent University, UAL, UEL, and have taught two full modules at Goldsmiths.

Here’s a talk I did called ‘Where Games Break’ recorded at EMF Camp – it’s part performance, part discussion around where games break – intentionally or otherwise, and is a good sense of my general vibe when speaking. You can also check out my series of performance talks at Videobrains
