Gamification of Climate Justice
Gaming for Justice is a unique interactive adventure that was designed, drawn, and soundtracked by Oakland artists and visionaries. Using a combination of oral storytelling, artistic depictions, and customized music, Mycelium Youth Network will run a fully immerse virtual gaming experience based in the history of Oakland, California. Youth will have the opportunity to engage with four different adventures from the deforestation of Oak trees from Oakland, the missionization process, the Black Panther party, and will end examining ground-water pollution around the Black Solidarity Market by Lake Merrit. Youth will have the opportunity to solve real life issues and address ongoing challenges, such as pollution, deforestation, police brutality, and gentrification all within a fantasy setting. This is an amazing opportunity to engage with the rich history of Oakland as change makers and leaders.
Well known Oakland musical and visual artists will create an immersive game-ified version of beloved locations such as Joaquin Miller, Lake Merritt, Fruitvale, and West Oakland. Musical artists include Jennifer Johns, Teao Sense from Audiopharmacy, Lauren Adams from Sol Development. Visual artists include the talents of Desi Mundo and Leslie “Dime” Lopez. Additional visual artists are still being confirmed.
