Gamify your City’s Future.
The Goethe Institute have created the platform ENTER AFRICA , a gaming workshop that will feature 15 participating countries across the continent. The idea is to create a better world through culture, gaming & participation to impact development and create a playful experience for the future of your City.
The programme encourages interdisciplinary groups of individuals to apply. Enter Africa is looking for you. The platform will employ both gaming and gamification to create a digital-analogue experience.
What about Gamification…
Gamification is the application of game-mechanics to other areas of activity to foster engagement. It has successfully been employed in e-learning and in corporate HR management.
The Enter Africa initiative will give participants a platform to design, develop and test a real local-based-game that impacts the future of their city.
In Nairobi, a 4 day workshop will commence on the 18th-21st April 2018, and another 3 day Game Lab is planned for the first half of 2019. This will include online support in between.
All participating countries will get a chance to select a representative to represent their teams in an additional Game Lab in Addis Ababa, in an pan-African game based on the first workshops.
This game will be presented at the GAMESCON 2019 in Cologne, Germany.
Who can apply…
The programme requires basic digital skills and a creative eye to designing a game idea.
Anyone interested in learning how to create games and how gamification can be used to impact Africa’s future.
Each team will take upto a maximum of 20 participants.
