HEEL ONS DORP BAKT
REAL LIFE SERIOUS GAME
Our unique 'Heel Ons Dorp Bakt' workshop combines creativity, teamwork and a touch of gossip culture in an unforgettable experience.
First, you step into a preparatory workshop where you hone your improvisation skills and discover your role as a fellow villager, be it the alderman, hairdresser or neighborhood supermarket manager.
Then dive into the heart of the game, where you and your fellow players get to work on cakes, pies and cupcakes. Craft away as you eat together. Collect points by increasing your knowledge about your fellow villagers by not only talking to them, but also about them. And the best part? You take your creation home to surprise your family and friends with your 'baking skills'.
'Heel Ons Dorp Bakt' is the ideal fusion of the 'Heel Holland Bakt' cake competition and village life, all with a wink.
After the game, we discuss the experiences and translate them into practically applicable behaviour in everyday life. In short, a tasty and entertaining way to promote team building and social learning.
Real life serious game 'Heel Ons Dorp Bakt'
'Heel Holland Bakt' contains ingredients like suspense, excitement and some cosiness. Mix those with the oppressive atmosphere of a small community where everyone talks about everyone else. Turn up the temperature and voilà, welcome to: 'Heel Ons Dorp Bakt'!
You will mainly be decorating various cakes. But like cakes themselves, it's all about the layers between them. Will it stay that cosy and manage not to let prejudice take over? And will the one who knows how to make the prettiest cakes or the one who masters the art of gossiping win?
Heel Ons Dorp Bakt as team building
Organizations that opt for this workshop want to strengthen cooperation between colleagues. Enquiry skills are addressed, and participants discover each other's creative competences.
Heel Ons Dorp Bakt tries in a light-hearted way to make it possible to discuss (gossip) culture in one's own workplace. This workshop also makes participants aware of their own (pre)judgements.
In this experience, ready-made cake products are decorated with rolling fondant, marzipan and other sweet things. So there is no actual baking. Here, gluten intolerance of some participants is taken into account, so everyone can have a cupcake to eat.
They went into the mirror before you
Great afternoon full of fun and team building. You will get an idea of the consequences of gossiping and get to know your colleagues in a completely different way!
The fantastic mix in this game of unabashed gossiping, creative baking and a masterful setting that allows you to really empathize, allowed us and the team to look in the mirror nicely and experience the effects of gossiping and how stories take on a life of their own and harm people.
