Call for Proposals

Do you have ideas on the use of games in libraries that you want to share, games you want to test, questions you want to explore?

We are pleased to open the call for proposals for workshops and talks at Game Library Camp 2019. We are looking for submissions relating to the intersection of games of all types and libraries across all sectors.

Talks ≈ 30 mins – We have time for a very limited number of talks on subjects related to games in libraries that will be of general interest to library staff across sectors. ALL TALK SLOTS HAVE NOW BEEN TAKEN

Workshops ≈ 40 mins – Interactive sessions in which attendees will actively participate. This could include making, testing or playing games, structured play activities, writing, coding or anything else hands on and practical. We aim to fit as many of these in as possible and will have several parallel sessions.

Discussions sessions ≈ 40 mins – Discussion sessions will be organised on the day in an unconference style. However we are looking for people who are willing to moderate these sessions. If you are interested in discussing specific topics on the day and are willing to help moderate sessions please let us know.

Something else? – We are open to suggestions for other content and our schedule will be arranged around your submissions. If you want to do something shorter, say a Flash Talk, or something longer like an Alternate Reality Game (ARG) feel free to propose those too.

To submit your proposal please complete this form
