Working in water, environmental or conservation/community causes? This opportunity may be for you! It is fun to design live public street games and I hope to hear a few great ideas emerging from this group. What game would you design for Come Out and Play?  Do you want to collaborate on a game together?

I'm pleased to share some news. We are collaborating with the Come Out & Play Festival to commission a newly designed outdoor game to kick-off this year's Games for Change Festival. The game will run Sunday, June 19, Father’s Day, and will be featured in this summer’s brand new Come Out & Play Summer Series of street games running in downtown Manhattan at the River to River Festival.

The Real-world Games for Change Challenge aims to find those who want to design a game that can be played outdoors, while focusing on leaving a positive impact on the physical environment where the game was played. The winning designers will receive $5,000 to implement their game idea and will present their design and findings during our Festival. Deadline to apply is April 15. For an application: http://bit.ly/hnOQvw  

In commissioning the game, we hope to use the occasion of the Festival to introduce public audiences to the work of game designers who have a strong awareness and passion for positive social change.
