Playthink

Game salon

Playthink is a USC-based salon about games, interactivity, art and culture. Since 2013, we have held a regular series of discussions at the USC Game Innovation Lab that are dedicated to drawing out provocative ideas around play, games, art and interactivity. This year, in 2018, we have added a podcast component to our salon. Now you can listen to Playthink episodes on this page, below, or by subscribing to our feed on iTunes or Google Play.

Upcoming and past salons

September 2014 Playthink@USC

The USC School of Cinematic Arts’ Game Innovation Lab would like to invite you to the first Playthink of the Fall semester!

When: Tuesday, September 9th from 6pm to 9pm
Where: SCI 201 on the second floor of the School of Cinematic Arts SCI building

Playthink has become a lively nexus of community for USC Games. With the banner line of “games and play as art and culture”, we meet a few times a semester to host wide-ranging, audience-participatory discussions of the history, present and futures of games and interactive media.

Everyone in the USC community is welcome – we hope to see you there!
