The Surrogacy Act
About the project
The Surrogacy Act is an interactive storytelling game. The activity takes the audience on a digital journey, allowing them to choose between six characters and make different choices to explore variations in the character’s story. These characters are intended parents and surrogates from different jurisdictions. By sharing experiences from surrogates and other stakeholders, the activity’s immersive experience is enhanced through interwoven audio clips. Each narrative provides insights into the legal frameworks and ethical dilemmas surrounding surrogacy in different contexts.
