RiVAL: the ReImagining Value Action Lab is pleased to host a series of boardgame nights to experiment with board games for social justice. Visit rival.lakeheadu.ca/games for more information.

On October 13 we will be playing RISE UP: THE GAME OF PEOPLE AND POWER by the TESA Collective (http://www.toolboxfored.org/project/rise-up/).

No experience is necessary. Please feel free to bring a beverage and a snack to share. We enjoy a little good-natured competition but “winning” is not the objective. Rather, we are interested in exploring how board-games and other forms of participatory learning and tactical frivolity have been and could be used as vehicles to radicalize the imagination and help us think anew about our struggles for social justice. We also believe that play and fun are part of the means and the ends of social justice.

This event is open to the public, but please let us know you’re coming.

RiVAL is a scent-sensitive space – please refrain from using strong chemical and perfume products. RiVAL welcomes people of all ages to most of its events. RiVAL is not a barrier-free space: there are about 20 steps between the PACI building entrance and RiVAL.
