What makes an effective digital story? What tools do you need to win people over to your cause of campaign? How can we keep the stories we tell fresh and relevant to a diverse audience?

Florencia Minuzzi

Florencia is the writer and co-founder of Tea-Powered Games. They make games that focus on communication and conversation in everyday life.
As an interactive medium, video games are in a prime position to offer stories that engender empathy and understanding through the player's actions. Florencia will talk about making relatable, non-violent games that help people reflect on their own approaches to conversation.
