2018 Malmö Talks

Under 25: We’re Here to Take Your Place – Agata Świstak

During her talk, Agata Swistak would like to encourage established larp organisers and community leaders to change their style of management and open themselves to something new. Equipped with a number of tips and advice, she would like to inspire people to discussion on how to be more inclusive and supportive towards young folks in our communities – and why it will make the larp better.

Agata Swistak is a community leader and a professional project manager working with larp and event design. In her work, she puts an effort to create safe and empowering spaces. In 2013 she was part of the group creating one of the loudest larps in the world – College of Wizardry, and later became a main coordinator of the entire event. She believes that empathy and inclusion create not only strong communities, but also unforgettable and transformative experiences.

Wizardry 101 – Agata Świstak

Wizardry 101 is a talk devoted to all who treated larp scenography as a nuisance or something that happens by accident. Agata “Świstak” Lubańska will try to destroy some of those stereotypes and also provide you with some hints on how it worked at Czocha College of Wizardry.

Agata “Świstak” Lubańska – one of the founders of Polish NGO called Liveform. She is organising projects for local community since her first Knudepunkt at 2011, and global – since 2014, when she became head scenographer at College of Wizardry. Despite her short romances with game design (which flourished with Distinction Award for short scenario ‘SNOW’ at Golden Cobra contest) her true loves are project management and working with people.
