Goal: to produce a working prototype in which civic engagement is achieved through a playful engagement with the urban environment. Members of this group: Teja Rot (facilitator), Alina Minkova, Paola Pizzo, Nikos Vandoros, Paula Velasco, María Yáñez and Ivana Pejić. The Output: Are you a man? Well, imagine you are a woman walking on the streets. Depending on your background, the challenges you must overcome in a city change considerably. As a citizen, you probably need to go from one place to another, but what perils will you find on your path? This is the premise of the game created by this group, A woman goes for a walk…, one that means you should play from empathy and female gaze approaches.
