Cultivating Games & Platforms for Decolonization, Mutual Aid & CapacitationPosted on October 16, 2015 by Codz — No Comments ↓Cultivating Games & Platforms for Decolonization, Mutual Aid & CapacitationSUNDAY OCT 18 20155pm … somewhere in the 206, contact organizer for details (see below)Getting together with folks to continue brainstorming and implementing the project detailed below. To request audio recording from our last session contact event organizer. This session we plan to try play testing a game that fits the criteria of what we are seeking to create. We already have a few in mind but feel free to share games or platforms on this page or email to event organizer.What if instead of going through K-12 education and the University system, spending lots of money and/or accruing debt, facing a scarcity economy dominated by mass incarceration, genocide and ecocide, we were to organize ourselves based on games designed for the purpose of mutual capacitation? I am looking for collaborators on a multi-platform (e.g. strictly oral mediums, electronic, pencil and paper, tabletop, sports-like) storytelling game that is meant to be used as a tool for individual and social organization to time travel and manifest a world in which many worlds fit. Any compensation will be based on forming a team of people and collectively organizing a crowd-funding campaign that will provide for agreed upon living stipends among other project costs formed by the collective.A bit of the idea with the game to be developed is using the concept and mechanisms of character creation and “party building” or “team building” to intentionally organize ourselves to optimize mutual aid on individual and collective levels; a group of players intentionally crafting their characters to be complimentary with respect to all of their skills, knowledges, traditions, objectives etc. …and/or using the concept to analyze and set intentional paths regarding where a given “party”( i.e. group of people walking/traveling–literally or figuratively–together toward something) currently is and how to attain desired metamorphoses. Individuals and individual parties, groups, collectives, guilds etc. further use the mechanics of the ‘game’ to establish cooperative relationships for manifesting whatever it is they have the capacity and desire for between their respective conglomerations.-Cody Lestellecslestelle@gmail.com206freeskool.orgcodylestelle.wordpress.com
