Corey Brotherson (The Windrush Tales) and Florent Maurin (Bury Me, My Love) speak about the process of creating games led by lived experience of migration and displacement. Presented at the PopChange X Platforma Youth Retreat, hosted as part of the Platforma 5 Festival, The Gulbenkian, Kent, October 2019. https://popchange.co.uk/events/pop-cu…
PopChange (Pop Culture & Social Change) is a pioneering initiative from Counterpoints Arts exploring how the power of pop culture can be harnessed for social change — shifting the way we talk, think and feel about migration and displacement. Platforma arts and refugee network supports and develops arts and culture by, about and with refugees and migrants.
Platforma is managed by Counterpoints Arts in partnership with organisations across the country. Every two years we run the Platforma Festival in a different part of England. Platforma 5, took place in Kent & Medway in October 2019.
