THE CREATIVE REVOLUTION
There’s a revolution coming and we want you to be a part of it!
Live-action role-playing games are no longer just a hobby for a few die-hard fans. They are gaining ground fast in many areas, as tools for education and training, tourist attractions, projects aimed to maintain and explore cultural and historical heritage…
PoRtaL is an international conference dedicated to exploring ways to enhance and expand possibilities and opportunities of live-action role-playing (LARP) games. Founded 2012 in Zagreb, Croatia, it has been held four times so far: twice in Zagreb and twice in Budapest, Hungary.
LARP IN EDUCATION, TOURISM, HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGEMENT…
This year the PoRtaL will set out to explore what LARP games can offer in areas such as education, tourism, human resources management… The conference will focus on two main issues:
• how to use LARPs and LARP-related games as tools (primarily in education, but also in a corporate environment)
• how to successfully monetize them.
INSIGHTS AND BEST PRACTICES
Some of the best European LARP designers and educators will join us to share their experiences, insights and best practices. We aim to offer a platform for networking, learning and creating new opportunities, both for larpers, LARP designers and producers, as well as educators, government officials, human resources, tourist and other business professionals… And, of course, to have fun while doing it!
The organizers of the PoRtaL 5 are the Terrible Creations creative collective and the Zagreb Fantasy Country Association.
