Bridging Social Capital through Gaming

This project proposes gaming as the new effective approach to catalysing the social interactions between the refugees and the locals of Bamberg in Germany. Characteristics of games such as bowling, chess, backgammon and the local game of Schafkopf are explored as cultural and social spaces that motivate people to share and learn from one another.
