Carmen Johann

Carmen Johann [de] is a researcher, developer and interdisciplinary designer in the field of interactive media currently working at the Cologne Game Lab (TH-Köln) for the research project SOLVE focusing on "Mental Health Games" for addiction prevention programs and as a lecturer. She supported the Notgames Fest exhibitions 2011, 2013 & 2015, gives game workshops worldwide and works on several freelance projects besides. A project in Sudan together with the Goethe Institute is very close to her heart, as it can strengthen the local games community and thus promote African games culture and bring it to Europe. Together with her colleague Fee Bonny, she has also founded the company Die Pixelbeschleuniger, where they work on a game helping children to get through grief.
