Registration is closed. We will reach out to you before Friday to confirm your attendance.
The discussion might be recorded, but no filming or photographs will be released, nor will any participant be identified unless they agree to it.

Come to this Working Group to discuss issues of representations, story, narrative, and its relationship with game mechanics; reflect on the past, present and what you see for the future; facilitated by award-winning media critic Anita Sarkeesian.

Some sample topics to be discussed:
- How, if at all, has representation in gaming changed in the last 10 years?
- What do you see as the next major hurdle for games to overcome in the next 10 years?
- What obstacles might get in the way of that?
- What do you envision for the future of games?
- What impact will new platforms (Stadia, Apple Arcade), or new technologies (hardware, consoles, Mixed Reality) have on the future of games?
