Escape Game from Disrupted Society?


This session will give participants an experience of “Interlingual Escape Game” which requires deaf people who communicate using sign language and hearing people to work together to solve puzzles. The game was developed by IGENGO Lab. (an organization by deaf people & hearing people) and Japan’s public media, NHK. The only way for success being to work together on equal terms, the participants take a deep dive about social inclusion, and universal design in the context of the media and society.
