Cultural institutions large and small are increasingly commissioning and exhibiting games as content. This panel will look at how museums, libraries, and gallery spaces are using games to engage new audiences for education and creative exploration. Each participant will showcase their production, curatorial and educational practices. The presentations will be followed by a conversation on what has been accomplished with games in cultural spaces and what we can expect in the future as interactivity, technology and immersion become norms of cultural experience.
