Games [4Health] Jam 2013: Sink or Swim!



Together with Fontys colleagues, I organized the 3rd Games [4Health] Jam; this year’s theme was ‘Sink or Swim’: 40 participants created working games IN THE SWIMMING POOL, within 50 hours!
Design sessions and user evaluations were done immediately in the swimming pool - with all the expected (and unexpected) complications. All by all, a fun and inspiring weekend, with good results from the participants.

Games [4Health] Jam 2012: Public Play

Together with Menno Deen, Janienke Sturm and Luuk Waarbroek, I organized the 2nd Games [4Health] Jam; this year’s theme was ‘public play’, and once again the 70 students created working games that motivate people to play in an active way - within 50 hours!

The results have been presented and exhibited at the Dutch Design Week Stadhuis exhibition, the Games for Health Europe conference, and at the Games in the City conference.

Together with Menno Deen, Mark van Kuijk and Janienke Sturm, I organised our 2nd Games [4 Health] Jam. A weekend in which 65 students and alumni from the Netherlands and abroad engaged in a game design competition, focused on developing games that motivate teenagers to be physically active.
A great success, and very enjoyable! More details can be found at gamesjam.nl
