Spelkultur för alla drömmer om en jämställd och tillgänglig spelkultur. Vi – konstnären Siri Landgren och spelvetaren Kjell Håftén – arbetar med offentliga evenemang där vi presenterar och analyserar spelkulturens olika sidor ur ett normkritiskt perspektiv: Vilka är representerade i dataspelen? Hur ser spelens publik ut? Vad kan spelkultur betyda för människor, och hur kan vi se till att den är tillgänglig för fler? Under dessa träffar bjuder vi in er att diskutera tillsammans med oss, dela med er av era erfarenheter och upptäcka nya spel och tankar. En Spelkultur-kväll kan bestå av filmvisning, provspelning av normbrytande spel, föreläsning och avslutas alltid med en gemensam diskussion – allt för att visa på den bredd som finns, och som måste finnas, inom spelkulturen.

LajvVerkstaden jobbar med lajv (levande rollspel) som kulturform och pedagogiskt verktyg. Genom att levandegöra undervisning och sätta kunskap i en kontext vill vi skapa modigare människor som tar ansvar för sig själva och sin omvärld.

Festival for electronic arts

DATE: 1-6 February, the program is updated before and during the festival, check the Facebook page for latest updates.

TIME: Time slots will be published regularly during the festival.

LOCATION: Epic Unidragon Masthuggskajen

Partner locations
GG Bar Kapellgatan 12

CALL FOR ARTISTS!
Artists are welcome to exhibit/screen/build electronic/interactive/moving image art, send your proposals to jasmine(at)maker.ninja

Electrodome
Electrodome is a festival for electronic, interactive and moving image art that happens during winter and summer. Founded by curator/artist Idun in 2014, this concept is planned to be a permanent venue and lab for electronic and interactive arts, as well as yearly festivals (including crossmedia, transmedia, experience design art). 

Currently the home of the festival is at the Epic Unidragon game gallery but collaborations and global events are welcome. As digital culture is highly discriminated in the culture institutions in Sweden, Gothenburg in particular, the gallery and festival are important spaces for all artists working with games and other digital and interactive expressions. Diversity, personal freedom and equality is the highest priority and anyone is welcome to propose events and works to exhibit/host in the gallery and at the festival. Background, age, gender, technology etc. does not matter as long as it is not the traditional art forms that already have plenty of spaces/funding (traditional theatre/painting/sculpture etc).
