Play Southend – Job Opportunity: Outreach, PR, Social Media

Play Southend, is an event-based and online art project that invites the public to build a collaborative platform game about the future of their hometown.

This Spring local residents will make a platform game of Southend working with artists Ruth Catlow, Mary Flanagan and other local artists and game designers.

Southenders of all ages and experiences will make the drawings for the backgrounds, obstacles and rewards that make up the game. They will devise the rules of the game inspired by their town, deciding how the different elements relate and shape the future.

The Challenge
“People of Southend define your future together! Make decisions for the long term prosperity and health of all. If you draw it, it will happen.”

Over the next couple of months we are running workshops and developing the game community before it launches officially at Village Green in July.
