'The Art Of Playing Games'

The Art Of Playing Games: 14th November, 1.00pm (12.30pm lunch).
2 Pear Tree Court, Clerkenwell :: Hosted by Arts Council, London, and the LDA.

You are warmly invited to lunch at Arts Council England, London for the 'Art Of Playing Games'. This latest event is part of the Digital Culture Lunchtime talks series looking at the impact of new technologies on different artforms.

Many of you came to the fantastic Hari Kunzru talk, organised with Literature, and we continue our series with 'The Art Of Playing Games'. This time we'll consider gaming as it crosses over into theatre and visual Arts, and as a 'cultural industry' in its own right. We are extremely pleased to present a sparkling panel of gaming experts including:

Dave Green - Technology correspondent for the Phil Jupitus breakfast show on BBC 6Music and authority on web gaming :: Conrad Bodman - Our own Senior Officer who curated 'Game On' at Science Museum :: Tim Wright - digital writer and trAce contributor will present various ways of playing on the web :: Producers for Coney - facilitating a mysterious experimental theatre project.

This panel is assembled following the recent London Games Festival and Tom Campbell from the LDA will discuss the Fringe element that was supported by the LDA and Arts Council, London.

There will also be two artworks displayed in Reception from the recent Furtherfield show 'Gameplay'. 'Endless Forest' by Tale Of Tales 'Facade' by Michael Mateas and Andrew Stern.

Tuesday 14th November
12.30 lunch
1.00pm talks begin.
