Game workshops with students and professionals of care

08.04.22

This week, the Institute of Care team engaged in two game workshops - one online with Metropolia students of geronomy, and one onsite, with staff at Kustaankartano senior centre.

The crisis of care is actualising in Finland with a large nursing strike, and increased numbers of care workers leaving their profession. For many, it is not just a question of pay, but also of the unethical structures of care.

Using methods from live-action role playing devised by Trojan Horse and Vienne Chan, the workshops reimagined elderly care in a not so distant future with more flexible and collaborative working conditions.
