La Fiambrera Obrera & Mar de Niebla

25 November 2008


Bordergames embraces a number of workshops targeting young people and focused on the virtual and interactive reconfiguration of their environment, creating the narrative of a videogame of adventures with those young people as the heroes of the game. Bordegames La Calzada was carried out in Summer 2007, thanks to the initiative and collaboration of LABoral, and Mar de Niebla. La Calzada is a working class area in Gijon suffering the consequences of the recent decadence of the city, with the dramatic end of the shipbuilding industry, social marginalization and drugs, coupled with the current real estate speculation encouraged by neoliberal policies ignoring real people.
