Workshop details:

"har:d!"

Description: Participants of the har:d!* workshop will be part of a playful role playing experiment revolving around a recent case of online harassment in the games industry. During har.d, “the internet”, consisting of two parties with clashing opinions and an anonymous jury, will come to life in the shape of workshop participants. Armed to the teeth with convictions, personal interests and other stuff, both teams will engage in an epic offline fight about harassment. Their efforts will be judged by a relentless jury, and there can only be one winner…
