Promoting a Culture of Consent, Communal Care, and Brave Play in Play Environments

October 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Ready to roll into Fall by exploring the ideas on the crossroads of games, play, and libraries? GameRT has got you covered with a new installment of its Webinar series. In this session Beatrix Livesey-Stephens will be exploring the topic of Safety Tools for TTRPGs, what they are, why they are important, and how you can bring them into your library‚Äôs play sessions. The webinar will explore themes of communal care, and the ways in which safety and calibration techniques can be used to tell rich and engaging stories at the table. Far from ’rounding the edges’, a culture of calibration and consent actually enables people to “play bravely” and get the play they crave, and even learn more about themselves and others.
