Poverty is complex and impacts people in different ways and to different degrees. Too often, people in our very own community are forced to make difficult choices - like paying rent or putting food on the table. These daily stresses add up and take a toll on the entire family and ultimately the wellbeing of our entire community. We invite you and/or your team to particpate in a unique, experiential opportunity that will give you a glimpse into the harsh realities of living in poverty in Regina.
The Brain Architecture Game is a tabletop game experience that builds understanding of the powerful role of experiences on early brain development – what promotes it, what derails it, with what consequences for our community. Participants gain a memorable, compelling perspective on the lifelong impact of early childhood experiences. The game is a 75-90 minute experience optimized for groups of 4-6 people per table. It can be played in small workshops, conferences, and large events, with as few as 15, or as many as 80 participants.
Hosted by United Way Regina, the Poverty Simulation is an interactive tool that emulates what it would be like to live one month in poverty in Saskatchewan. Participants are given a backstory, a job, and a bank account. Their task – to see if they can last a month on a low and fixed income. Facilitators pose different questions and challenges for the participants to answer. The questions are based on real life scenarios right here in Regina.
