Join us for a panel about how games (indie and beyond) integrate exploration of marginalized identities and can facilitate growth and catharsis for players. We will begin to question how games can be used to promote player empowerment, but also to promote awareness for those who occupy identities with power and privilege.

The panel discussion will be followed by an informal games showcase that will give you a chance to play the hottest games that explore identity in digital, real world, and card or board game formats.
