Who is it for?
This event is for people who want to talk about UK larp. It is not exclusively for people who have made larps, but is also open to those who are interested in doing it in the future and academics with an interest in larp. Larp participants are also more than welcome to attend
What is on the programme?
There will be an open call for programme items. We will curate a mixture of talks, panels, lightning talks (less than 5 minutes,) workshops, and facilitated discussions. It will be entertaining, interactive, informative, and vibrant. Some of it might be a bit theoretical, some of it might make you angry, all of it should be interesting. There will also be lots of breaks for you to talk to other designers too.
The Call for Programme will open in April and run until the Start of July. The Provisional Programme will be available at the start of September.
How much will it cost?
Places at this event will cost £35 and will include unlimited tea and coffee refreshments and a sandwich lunch. A limited number of subsidised tickets (costing £5) will be available; the exact number of these will depend on overall ticket sales.
