In the Speakers' Corner at PLAY21, everyone has their say! We are looking for your ideas, projects and topics around digital gaming culture. You have something to tell and want to share your experiences with games and exchange ideas with the festival audience? Then join us and submit your topic!


The more innovative, amazing, controversial, the better. Be creative and get involved so that with your help we can turn the old London tradition of Speakers' Corner into a PLAY tradition.

Speakers' Corner will take place on Sunday, November 7 between 12pm and 3pm and on Tuesday, November 9 between 4pm and 7pm. All talks will be produced via Zoom and streamed live.

All speakers will have 15 minutes, plus 5 minutes for questions and discussion with the audience. The Speakers' Corner will again be moderated and accompanied by Mats Sharma.

Here you can find the Speakers' Corner Guidelines, the Privacy Policy and the form to submit your contribution. Some slots are already taken, so hurry up!
