Carly Thomsen is available to lead workshops on college campuses, at middle and high schools, and for community organizations. Recently, she has conducted workshops or shared games at:
3rd Street Youth Center and Clinic (San Francisco, CA)
Middlebury Union Middle School: Project Becoming after-school program (Middlebury, VT)
St. Cloud State University: Classes in the Department of Ethnic, Gender, and Women’s Studies, the Women’s Center, and the Students for Choice activist group (St. Cloud, MN)
"Playing the games opened up a space in which students who had never taken a feminist or queer studies course had the opportunity to engage with important concepts from these fields in deep (and enjoyable!) ways. Even in playing Pregnant and Incarcerated, which directly confronts the violence of prisons and the constrained nature of abortion access for those who are incarcerated, the game format allowed students to move into thinking about these difficult issues in a creative, meaningful way and to talk about them together."

"I believe that other students benefited from this session because it provided a safe, low-pressure and informal space to engage in dialogue. This event allowed students who may be hesitant to get involved, or just too busy, the opportunity to come and express any confusion and concerns."
