Come and help design a new mobile game, learn some history and turn it into a playable story. We are creating a game app as part of the History of Place project. History of Place: Eight Places, Eight hundred years in the lives of deaf and disabled people. You can find out more about it here

This edition of the game will be linked to medieval Faversham and Canterbury and the links between the almshouses and hospitals on the pilgrim’s route to Canterbury Cathedral.

This is a unique opportunity to influence a digital game in development, to influence the stories, the characters, and how and what we play. No coding or games design skills required. Bring your imagination.
