Make boardgames great again

  • Room 301, Geoffrey Manton Building, Manchester Metropolitan University Rosemond Street West Manchester UK (map)

Matteo Menapace is officially VIDEOgames designer in residence at the V&A in London. Practically he makes cooperative boardgames about cheerful topics like food politics, memory loss and honeybee capitalism. In our age of extreme individualism, tech addiction and epidemic loneliness, in which the incarnation of Mister Monopoly is literally the US president, Matteo teaches people how to make games that encourage collaboration and experimentation, and help us tackle tough questions. In this seminar Matteo discusses his work, and his experiences of being VIDEOgames designer in residence at the V&A.
