The trail explored gender, race, sexuality, neurodivergence and other aspects of identity in gaming. The Game Changers group came up with their ideas through meeting in weekly sessions from November 2021 until March 2022, with 13 virtual sessions and 1 in-person session at the National Videogame Museum in Sheffield. These were led by Freelance Facilitator Sacha Coward, and Leah Dungay from the NVM. Guest speakers from within the museum and the wider cultural sector also joined these sessions.
Gaming Heritage with the National Videogame Museum
We supported the National Videogame Museum (NVM) in a project exploring the heritage of games, including character creation, avatars and representation, from the 1970s to the present. The result was a creative pop-up trail and puzzles created by the NVM’s internal panel of young people, the Game Changers.
