R2R22 – The game HOME to be presented at Radically Rural this week – Sept 21

NEWSFLASH: The CCRC has been selected to present the interactive game – HOME – at the Radically Rural™ conference in New Hampshire this week.

HOME is a collaborative storytelling/teaching tool designed by gamer Nolan Polkinghorne with the support of Rural Ontario Institute (ROI) to help communities have more productive conversations about affordable/attainable housing.

HOME asks us to inhabit the perspectives of people whose daily lives are impacted by the availability and quality of affordable housing. Players, who represent community members, participate in a housing design project and weigh in on the future of housing against the backdrop of very real struggles experienced every day.

At R2R22, delegates will have an opportunity to play HOME.
