As a part of the MoU, Marion Bareil, game designer from HEAD – Genève and founder of interactive gaming firm Tourmaline Studio interacted with game design students of NID Bangalore with an interesting political games workshop during her visit to India for Gaming Tour India 2016 in November.

The National Institute of Design (NID) is a premier design school in India functioning from 1951 expanding into diverse design domains. Geneva School of Art and Design (HEAD – Genève) was formed in 2006 from the merger of two art schools, the Ecole supérieure des beaux-arts and the Haute école d’arts appliqués, both over two hundred years old, and continues to be engaged with the art scene and the regional economic fabric. Through this MoU, students will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with international designers, experts and collaborators from various artistic disciplines on a diverse range of topics to let them foster new ways of design thinking.
