The week leading up to Knutpunkt is called A Week in (City). This year it's A Week in Gothenburg, and that means a whole lot of international larpers and larp academics head to Gothenburg today. I will be volunteering parts of this week before I myself head to Halmstad and the even venue for Knutpunkt on thursday.
The youth house Arena 29 will be used as a hub and centre of activity. Some participants will sleep there and some meals will be served there. Tonight there will be a movie showing at Arena 29 at 18.00 and for those who are old enough to drink there is a beer-themed tour of Gothenburg at 19.00. Arena 29 is open for visitors, focusing on those the Youth house is aimed at, the young people who usually attend activities there. Both visitors and those who sleep at Arena 29 have to be sober when they are in the house.
Here are directions to Arena 29
I'm looking forward to having conversations with people coming from other perspectives on larp and expanding my knowledge even further.
