Are you an industry leader?

Are you passionate about non-profit work?

Are you a gamer or are interested in becoming one?

Then consider joining Do a Barrel Roll's Advisory Board!

 

Who are we?

We're Do a Barrel Roll (http://www.doabarrelroll.ca), a Canadian registered non-profit using the power of gaming of all types, from video to tabletop, to drive positive change in the lives of individuals and communities. We focus on the nexus of how gaming can drive inclusion, acceptance, belonging, friendship, community, and healthy living.

What are we doing?

Do a Barrel Roll is working to challenge endemic narratives about gaming by highlighting how it can be a vehicle for positive change, pro-social behaviour, community development, inclusion, acceptance, belonging, and healthy living.

We are looking for personal stories, thought pieces, and contributions by gamers all over the world. We think of gaming in the broadest possible sense: video; arcade; table top; mobile; AR/VR; LARPing; escape rooms; and, plenty of other categories. In particular, we are interested in stories that showcase how gaming has been a means by which gamers have found a sense of belonging, acceptance, inclusion, friendship or developed a community. Stories are the most powerful means of communicating this message.

To help guide us into 2019 and beyond, we are looking for strong candidates to work with us on our new Advisory Board. 

What are you going to do with us?

The Do a Barrel Roll Advisory Board is a body of committed volunteers who are leading experts, corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, researchers, policymakers, and relevant professionals with the “gaming” industry - esports, video games, LARP, table top, DnD, mobile, arcade and so on. Each must share Do a Barrel Roll’s vision that gaming of all types can be a powerful tool to drive positive change, incite curiosity and learning, create community and belonging, facilitate friendship, and promote acceptance and healthy living.

  3. Working with Do a Barrel Roll’s team to identify new opportunities for projects, events, and activities;
  4. Assisting in the identification and development of core, and project-specific, funding opportunities;
  5. Joining ad-hoc working groups from time to time that focus on particular issues, activities, or questions; and,
  6. Members offering their resignation may support the identification of a replacement.

changemaking ability
