                                                            Does the future, in its boundless possibilities, hide a chance for our old games to go global? Or will time devour its memory like it did with older ones? If we looked back in-depth at our history of games, we would instantly grasp its intrinsic ability to go viral and reach global fame! "Saudi Games, International Players!" explores the elements and techniques of traditional Saudi games and how it can infiltrate to the world's collective memory. Even though they may seem very old, or carry local names, yet these games can reach a global audience! This workshop will be guided by Samer Yamani, the creative director and cultural coordinator with his 15 years broad international experience. His work is associated with multi-cultural design, cultural and creative industries, heritage, publications, and others. Samer manages Creative Dialogue, a creative agency that has been operating since 2009 and has several projects in more than 30 cities around the world.
