For a 2022 panel presentation for the National Art Education Association, five art educators who were originally connected within a cohort of graduate students shared the significance of how play invites working together, creates intentional community, and informs and sustains their art, teaching, and research practices. This article features the transcript of the panel discussion, which examines their experiences of playing games together resulting in problematizing issues of access, articulating themes of relationality, and emphasizing the seriousness of play.
