Explore the States of Play: Roleplay Reality exhibition after hours and experience a whole host of interactive workshops, showcases and performances across FACT and Ropewalks Square. Highlights include a new artistic commission and music performance, and a building takeover by local gaming studios, developers and students, turning FACT into an immersive gaming hub.

States of Play: Roleplay Reality brings together artworks and industry games to explore how the roles we play expose our true realities: with all of our contradictory motivations, biases and assumptions. The result of this can be joyous and disturbing, freeing or subjugating, but now – more than ever – it is impossible to separate our physical identities with the roles that we take up in virtual space.
