The Yellow Thread Society

June get-together

Featured Guests:
Phoenix Perry and Colleen Macklin

Monday, June 23rd, 6:30pm
Hill & Dale, 115 Allen St
RSVP (Yellow accessories a must!)

Join us for an informal conversation with two of the fiercest, most charismatic game educators in New York -- Phoenix Perry and Colleen Macklin in conversation about what they teach, who they teach, and how they do it. What do we learn when learning about games? When does teaching about games becomes larger than the games themselves? And what happens when we learn nothing at all?

Colleen Macklin is a game designer, an Associate Professor of Media Design at Parsons The New School for Design and founder and co-director of PETLab (Prototyping Education and Technology Lab) which focuses on games for experimental learning and social engagement.

Phoenix Perry is an Adjunct Professor at NYU teaching Gaming, Design and Embodiment at Poly, ITP and Steinhardt. She is co-founder of Code Liberation, an initiative that offers free game development and programming skills to creative women and teens.

What we're mending

The Yellow Thread Society is New York's first (almost) monthly get-together featuring women in games. We're knitting together a diverse, adventurous and inclusive game community were women don't need to shout to be heard. Come meet others in the field and listen to experienced women creators share their stories of triumph, tribulation and personal fulfillment working in games. People of all genders welcome to attend.
(Also yarn bombing*.)
