Rami Ismail – Religion – Gamejams
We are proud to announce that Rami, known for his inspiring blogposts, critical talks and out-of-the box thinking, is this year’s face on the Games [4Diversity] Jam flyers. With his partner Jan-Willem Nijman, Rami participated in many gamejams, sometimes even shorter than 2 hours! His witty remarks and constructive criticism correspond well with the missions statement of Games [4Diversity].
Games [4Diversity] tries to contribute to a better representation and inclusion of socio-cultural minorities in popular culture. We do this in positive and constructive ways. Most known is probably the annual jam session: Games [4Diversity] Jam. Having explored how the design perspectives are influenced by different perspectives (LGBTQ in 2014 – Ethnic Backgrounds in 2015), this year’s theme surrounds believe systems and religious convictions.
We are honored that Rami offered to help us in spreading a more positive an constructive position towards religion, namely that it can be inspiring and connect people. Do you want to join us making a difference? Sign up for this year’s Games [4Diversity] Jam. We found a very fitting space: the Dominican Church in Zwolle, the Netherlands.
Come to the Games [4Diversity] Jam 2016: I Believe! On March 26-27th, and be inspired by fellow developers and connect to existential thoughts and perspectives.
