Events for the younger members of the GameCity audience!
Anna Marsh, co-founder of Lady Shotgun Games and STEAM School teacher for GameCity7, is running some events for little’uns.
Stories and Spaces – Games & play for under 5′s
Broadway Cinema Studio, Friday 26th, 10.30am-11.45am
Under 5′s session
Come and explore the ways in which games and play give young children freedom to let their creativity bloom and learn a range of skills. In this session we’ll be making our own monsters and heroes, creating our own mazes and castles, telling our own stories, making up our own rules, and having lots of fun! Game Designer and mum Anna Marsh will be leading this session for the very young with activities for 0 – 5 year olds and their carers – if your little one can’t manage all of the activities plenty of toys are on hand to keep them entertained.
The Little Game Design Workshop
Broadway Cinema Studio, Friday 26th, 2.30pm-4pm
6 – 10 year olds
A workshop for 6 – 10 year olds where we will take brilliant ideas and turn them into brilliant game designs! Led by game designer Anna Marsh, we’ll be doing lots of creating on paper, drawing and a little writing, and turning your ideas for characters, stories, environments and challenges into great game concepts. Not just for those who like games already! We’ll be showing that anyone can have fantastic original ideas and turn them into amazing varied games. Stretch your imagination!
Bring the nippers along, and have a brilliant time!
