By attending an AIGA event, you agree to abide by the Code of Conduct.

Confronting sexism and toxic masculinity in gaming and other digital spaces, Angela Washko’s practice spans interventions in mainstream media, performance art in virtual environments, net art, video games, and moving image works.

Washko’s unique approach uses digital and game design to challenge misogyny and queerphobia in virtual public arenas.

Her projects include The Council on Gender Sensitivity and Behavioral Awareness in World of Warcraft, a four-year-long feminist intervention inside the most popular online multiplayer role-playing video game of all time; and The Game: The Game, a dating simulator wherein players experience the practices of several prominent seduction coaches (aka pick-up artists) taken directly from their instructional books and video materials.


This will be a live, in-person event.

The video will be available on the Walker Channel later this spring.
There will be no livestream, so please join us.

About the Insights Lecture Series

Insights is a design lecture series for progressive creatives. A unique collaboration between the Walker Art Center and AIGA Minnesota, the series embraces the unexpected to present diverse, exploratory, and contemporary lecturers.
Featuring perspectives from around the world, Insights gives voice to adventurous design thinkers and makers. These designers often pose challenges and push the edges of their profession, in turn inspiring us to identify new perspectives in our own work.
For over three decades, the Walker Art Center and AIGA Minnesota have co-presented the Insights Design Lecture Series and brought the world’s most adventurous design thinkers and makers to the Twin Cities.
Redefine your understanding of graphic design, dive into the thinking behind the work, then hang out after the lectures to meet the lecturers, grab a drink, and chat with your fellow design lovers.
Past lectures are archived on the Walker Art Center YouTube channel.
