Subverting Toxic Let's Play Culture: Inclusivity, Safe Spaces, and Fourplay Show

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

After an intersectional feminist analysis of the personalities and communities of some of the more popular Let's Play-style programming (particularly: Achievement Hunter and PewDiePie), Matt Albrecht, host of the YouTube show Fourplay, will discuss the need for more inclusive gameplay shows and outline the plan undertaken in creating a safe space on his own show. Following a particularly hostile year for women developers and cultural critics, the talk will spotlight Fourplay's founding principles of inclusiveness, accessibility, and camaraderie, and why these principles are so sorely needed and should be adopted by other allies.
