Games. Big or small. Plastic or wooden. With wheels or propellers. With blond hair or with fluffy legs. With angles or curves. Beautiful or bad. Whatever form we give to games, we have always liked to play with them. We loved letting our imagination create worlds with dragons, fairies, pirate ships and lost Atlantis.
Οn May 2018 we got invited by TEDx Thessaloniki and we created LEGOwords & games workshop, a proposal for playing outside the boundaries.
For a game that allowed the imagination to make a new world, beyond the blue and pink.
A world where there were no boyish or girlish toys. A world where non-discriminatory colors, shapes and senses prevailed.
From such a world we could not have missed: 1) blocks that covered all the tastes and 2) feelings covered by our own hands’ creation.
Genderhood and Eduk8 created a world where puns became LEGOwords & games and where for a while all participants were able to become children again.
