About Event

How can we address issues that are so sensitive to even talk about? How can we address these issues in a safe, comfortable way? How can we make opposing ideologies come together and see and understand each other’s perspectives? With our new “Arada – The Quest for Omniscience” experience/game, the Enter Africa team from Ethiopia explores this topic. The game does not only help pass the time, but also encourages players to interact with others and address an important topic in Ethiopia today: Identity. Come join us for the launch of this game where by players do not just play one character, but rather attempt to embody multiple identities and solve social issues by combining the values and powers of different cultures, communities and generations.The game “Arada – the Quest for Omniscience” shows the players that you cannot live separately, but you need everyone to address pressing issues. Through the places one gets to visit and the wisdoms acquired from the different characters in this places, the player will learn about cultural history, legends and about the power of unity. The clear message of the game: working together is the only way of becoming omniscient – which is not only relevant for Ethiopia but anywhere in the world. Not only this but we'll have a variety of Digital, Analogue and Physical games, a small game makers session will be waiting for you.
