Heikki Holmås mentions our larp on national radio

In an interview on national radio (1), newly appointed Minister of International Development Heikki Holmås talked about the importance of roleplaying games as a way to understand "the other" in a conflict situation. As an example he mentioned that there will be a larp in Ramallah this summer "to bring people together and to create an understanding for each others situation". He concluded this part of the interview, saying that "I will see if I can get to join some meaningful roleplaying games somewhere in the world in the time to come."

The interview is in Norwegian, and you can download Heikki Holmås talking about roleplaying games here.

Sign-up is open!

We are happy to announce that the sign-up for Till death do us part is finally open!

Till death do us part is a larp about a wedding between a Palestinian woman and a Norwegian man, in Ramallah, Palestine in August 2012. It is organized by The Peace & Freedom Youth Forum in Palestine and Fantasiforbundet in Norway. As far as we know it is the first larp ever made in Palestine. Read more about the larp.

As the larp is in Palestine, there are some practical issues to consider, so please read the practical information before signing up.

There is also possibilities to join in our Week in Jerusalem before the larp. We will use Jerusalem as a base for tours on the political situation in the area, combined with free time to visit the religious and cultural history of the city Jerusalem and the surrounding areas. Read more about Week in Jerusalem.

Learn more at Solmukohta and Fastaval

If you want to know more about the project and the people making it there will be possibilities to learn more at both Solmukohta and Fastaval. The second deadline for sign-up is April 17th.

At Solmukohta we will hold two program items about Fantasiforbundets work in both Palestine and Belarus, and you can read about the history of the project so far in the Solmukohta book. And don't hesitate to ask us about this over a beer or coffee. The complete Norwegian part of the project group will be at Solmukohta.

Trine will also be present at Fastaval. There will be no official program item about this, but if you are interested, please talk to her about it.
