IDEAS FOR CHANGE
MAKING POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS MATTER
MAKING AGENDA MATTER
Design an avatar who infiltrates video games where sexism, sexual harassment or other discriminations are present.
1: Choose a video game which you think reinforces gender stereotypes, or other inequalities and discriminations (e.g. racism, homophobia, ableism, poverty etc.)
2: Design an avatar or avatar tribe whose mission it is to address these issues.
What would they be called?
Would they have a motto?
Where would they live?
Would they have special powers?
3: See if you can bring your avatar/s to life (e.g. through animation, film, dance, drama, e-zine).
