AHRC – Design Research for Change Showcase
The AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) mounted a Design Research for Change showcase, part of the London Design Fair, which took place in London 20 to 23 September. Out of more than 300 projects that had received funding from the research council, just 67 were chosen for the prestigious event and Ni3 was one of just 20 to be highlighted with its own exhibit.
It was expected that the Design Fair would receive 10,000 visitors a day, and visitors to the Ni3 display would witness material that showed the new game taking shape, including its storyline and character development, along with a video of game play in development, and clips of Centre Co-Director Professor Adele Jones talking about the project.
The UK game – which is the most advanced in its development – focusses on intimate partner violence in teenage relationships and tackles emotional as well as physical abuse.
