Media-tion is a game that facilitates conversations around curated topics and images focused on gender, race and class. The purpose of the game is to allow players to develop their opinions. In this very biased world, everything has an ideology, and it is important to be able to read what people are telling us and why. Conversations about personal beliefs can sometimes be quite uncomfortable, and power dynamics can silence marginalized voices. The goal of the game is for the players to get comfortable with other people’s opinions and find ways to be more sympathetic to these points of view.
