Ampersand Projects are offering free sessions to Sandwell based organisations and community groups all about the positive impact of games and how they can be used to benefit communities. The sessions are part of the GoodGame project funded by Arts Council England and Big Lottery Fund.
The free sessions are 1 - 2 hours long and can be delivered at a time and place suitable for the organisation or group.
The session will look at games in a whole other way: as valuable, engaging tools that can improve people’s lives, not just a form of entertainment. Games can create immersive worlds, encourage collaboration and empathy and motivate us to solve problems. Ampersand Projects want to unlock the empowerment and skills development inherent in games to benefit communities in the Black Country.
The session consists of a presentation, discussions and an opportunity for your team and volunteers to play fun games that foster collaboration, communication and creativity.
If you are interested in booking a free session, available for the month of July, please contact Kate Andrews - Kate.firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that sessions are limited and will be booked on a first come, first served basis.
