Game Changer Chicago: Card, Board, and Computer Games for Change


The Game Changer Chicago Design Lab is an initiative in which youth collaborate with faculty and university students to create digital stories and games in order to explore various health-related issues. The GCC Design Lab workshops help youth gain skills in media literacy, critical inquiry, storytelling techniques, and game design. The Lab was started by Melissa Gilliam and Patrick Jagoda at the University of Chicago. Jagoda and Gilliam, alongside Lab game designers, will offer hands-on demos of a few of the games created through the project.
