dfEight students from California’s Pájaro Valley joined anthropologist Dvera Saxton in a creative workshop that led to the conceptualization and design of two farmworker-themed video games. The students, who all come from farmworker families, learned ideas and methods of anthropology, game design, and graphic design and combined those new insights with their own life experiences to create the games. The project aimed to foster greater empathy for farmworkers and a deeper sense of appreciation for the skilled but socially and economically undervalued work that they do in the strawberry fields.
