Speaking

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

I also regularly speak on games, digital technology, play, and interaction/participation in the arts at events such as EMF Camp, Feral Vector, GameCity, 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.

I have lectured at Chichester University, City University London, the TaPRA annual conference, Aberystwyth University, the University of Kent, Leeds Met University, Nottingham Trent University, as well as running a series of lectures for Loughborough University students on writing for sound and interaction.

Here’s a talk I did most recently called ‘Where Games Break’ recorded at EMF Camp – it’s part performance, part discussion around where games break – intentionally or otherwise.
