Conceptualised around the theme of gaming, the camp will focus on the nature of our contemporary ludic culture while taking into account the psychology of and theories about gaming. Electronic games and their roles in society will be discussed as well as the possibilities for Asia-Europe game development collaborations and industry-artist-researcher partnerships. Through an intensive programme of lectures, workshops and project work, the participants will conclude the camp with a presentation of their creative collaborations with a special showcase on the last day of the camp. The project aims at developing a platform to promote dialogue among art students and for them to learn more about one another’s contexts and cultures.
