Event Details

As part of the exhibition POWER OF WHO!, the symposium POWER OF CONVERSATION will take place on Saturday June 25: a panel discussion with various industry figures on how games can function as a form of protest. Italian film and video game director Leonard Menchiari will contribute to the symposium with a keynote about his work. Menchiari focuses on Vision Design and Creative Direction and is the brain behind RIOT: Civil Unrest (2019) and the recently released game Trek to Yomi.

Following the keynote and panel discussion, a networking reception will take place at MAMA’s showroom, where makers and developers from the game industry will also be present by invitation. Curator Sebastiaan Hoogstraten and filmmakers Anna Sandri and Guido de Boer will give a guided tour of the exhibition.


*The visit of Leonard Menchiari is made possible by the International Visitors Programme of Het Nieuwe Instituut with support from the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
