Brianna explained what geocaching was and their process of coming up with difference electorial issues to highlight within the game. She also encouraged the Grantmakers to experience a mini-scavenger hunt during the reception and gave sticker prizes to those who completed the task.

Myself and Chris Shoemaker from New York Public Library discussed our Hive collaboration NYC Haunts. We highlighted the game created in Seward Park which focused on women and labor issues. Grantmakers were able to sample the ARIS based game and ask questions on geolocative gaming.
