Award-winning, faith-led game designer Amy Green is joining us on Nov. 8 to tell her story of tragedy, recovery and faith.
Green created her first video game based on a bedtime story she would tell her kids to help them understand their brother's battle with cancer.
The game, "That Dragon, Cancer," takes players on a journey they can't quite win.
She presented the game in a Ted Talk, receiving over 1.5 million views. She said, "the hardest moments of our lives change us more than any goal we could ever accomplish."
Come hear her speak more and learn about her gaming experience!
She will have a talk followed by a Q&A in Judd Theater and it will start at 5:45 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 8th! It is open to students, faculty, staff, and community that want to attend. The event is free, but please reserve a ticket.
Prior to her talk, there will be an artist reception with refreshments from 5:00-5:30 p.m. in the Art Gallery.
Once you arrive to campus, take the main entrance on Memorial Rd. Then, turn into the parking lot on the right. Judd Theatre is located in the Garvey Center, the first building on the right. Once you take the main entrance, walk straight forward toward the Music Dept. Judd Theater is in the hallway to the left of the Music Dept. offices (building 11 section 9).
