Join Coral’s Andrew Losowsky and the New School’s Heather Chaplin for some Saturday afternoon gameplay! Through a guided, participatory process, you’ll create a futuristic scenario, then create a timeline of major events leading to that scenario. You’ll have an opportunity to hone some light design thinking and role playing skills to determine how news and information will spread.

This session is designed for:

  • People interested in building out potential future news scenarios
  • Fans of game nights, visioning exercises and role-playing
  • Anyone who needs a break Saturday afternoon
