A FREE and fun workshop for kids and their dads.
After a successful debut season at Hackham West Community Centre, Game Makers returns for second season at the Aldinga Community Centre.
Put your controllers down and create your very own ‘real world’ game using imagination, live action and team work, over the course of six action-packed sessions. Game Makers does not involve technology or video games. Instead, be guided by a theatre maker, a writer and a visual artist, to play and create your own imaginative real world games that explore real life issues and themes.
Our first season of Game Makers has had some terrific feedback:
"One of the great pieces of feedback that we were getting was that kids were so used to playing video games that they weren’t used to playing games in the real world."
Edwin Kemp Attrill, workshop leader and Artistic Director of ActNow Theatre
“Since Game Makers, I have noticed a shift in both of my son’s attitudes towards electronic gaming; they are now wanting to do more physical activity and love making up their own games. It’s fantastic, and we’ve already put our names down for the second season.”
Aaron Bridge (Morphett Vale) Game Makers Season 1 participant
“My boys were addicted to electronic gaming; I wanted them to use their imagination and become more active. Game Makers was overall a brilliant experience for my family. It has allowed my sons to spend some quality time with their father and encouraged them to be active and creative. They’ve done heaps of fun things including making a fort out of blankets, played plenty of action games and had a lot of laughs."
Tara Bridge (Morphett Vale)
The second season of Game Makers will run between 10am and 12noon every Sunday from 15 May to 19 June at the Aldinga Community Centre. Suitable for kids aged 5 - 12 years and their dads (or other care-givers).
