About the Event:

We are pleased to announce the launch of Rhizome of Ixil, a non-profit video game created by artist Daniella Pavlic. A launch party will be held on July 19th, 2014 at the Urbana Champaign Independent Media Center. Sponsored by the UC-IMC and Urbana Arts Grant, this launch party is free to the public and the whole community is invited to participate.
This event will showcase the video game and provide a chance for dialog around the current Latin American politics, specifically the Maya Ixil Community. There will be a short screening of ‘How to Nail a Dictator’ followed up by a demo of Rhizome of Ixil. A panel discussion will be held for questions regarding the game design and history of the Ixil community. The last portion of the launch will be open to the public for play-testing the game and giving feedback. Beverages and snacks will also be available.
