BEING HUMAN | THE CONVERSATION GAME
Being Human is a conversation game developed by the Tea and Tolerance project. It is designed to bring people together. After all, conversation is the glue that unites us. The purpose of the game is to provide a catalyst for conversation. Each game has a tea towel, 6 sets of cards, a teapot playing piece all contained within a tin tea caddy. You can follow the suggested guidelines or choose your own path. This game is not about winning but about taking part. The game is fun and also a catalyst for conversation. See our blog for many examples of the kinds of answers the game inspires
What a brilliant concept and excellently designed game! It really has a strong attention to detail.
BEING HUMAN GAME BEGINNINGS.
In 2013, the EDL ( English Defence league) were demonstrating outside York Mosque. Incredibly, instead of closing their doors, the mosque invited the EDL protestors in to drink tea, play football and talk. Of course, this inspired us. We wanted to find creative ways of exploring conflict and difference. The aim of the game is to create a space to exchange a variety of thoughts and feelings. More about the game here.
