Online discussion panels will be focused on non-typical gaming projects and the possibilities offered by the game medium. Expect experts on the subject among speakers including Isabelle Arvers from France – the curator of the unique Art & Games World Tour project, creators from the Total Refusal collective, Joseph de Lappe – creators of games presented at the GAME OVER exhibition, Kofi Oduro and artists from the Masterskaya 15 studio in Moscow (we hosted at the festival in 2019 with the Faced2faced avatar performance).

Both panels will be led by the Dutch curator Zuraida Buter, (zo-ii), winner of the Game Changer Award granted by IndieCade in the USA in 2020. She is a co-founder of the Playful Arts Festival in the Netherlands, former director of Global Game Jam, conducts academic classes on games and digital culture. She is currently programming the A MAZE festival in Berlin and co-hosts Exploration Mode as part of the Sickhouse / The Overkill Festival program.

All panels conducted in English.
