The “Gamified Workshop Toolkit” covers the areas of team building, mediation and co-creation and is primarily aimed at artists and creative professionals who are at the beginning of an artistic collaboration with others.
Designed as a card game, players learn how to share their values, experiences and needs in work processes and understand how others think and what is important to them in collaboration and communication. It also provides inspiration and the opportunity to reflect on how the team wants to deal with potential conflicts. During the session, the players are confronted with fictitious, but entirely possible conflict scenarios and can thus recognize and identify mechanisms that, although often concealed and non-transparent, cause tensions and difficulties – especially when the members of a team come from very different contexts. It can also help to improve cooperation with institutions by establishing values and principles of cooperation on both sides.
The “Gamified Workshop Toolkit” was developed by the producers Anikó Rácz, Doreen Toutikian and Dorota Ogrodzka.
