XX+ Women’s Games Jams, Leamington Spa – SOLD OUT!
14 October 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 15 October 2016 @ 6:00 pmSold out!
ReFIGuk are delighted to announce the xx+ games jam, 24 hours of fun and games design for women, transgender and non-binary people funded by ReFIG. UK sites are running in Brighton, Bristol, Leamington Spa & London.
XX+ Games Jam is an international jam, happening over 24 hours at 5 sites in the UK and 2 sites in Canada. The Jams will be a relaxed affair that welcomes all talents, professions and skill levels. Any kind of game can be created (digital, physical, paper) and teams will be formed to work around a theme to be announced at the start of the jam on Friday that is a secret until Canada starts too!
No background in tech or previous programming experience is needed – we need artists, sound designers, organisers, writers – and enthusiasm to come up with cool game ideas! People will be on hand to help out where you need.
Drinks, snacks and tech support will all be available – the venues will be open from 6-10pm on Friday and then til 6pm on Saturday. Some venues will allow for optional late night jamming.
~ there are 24 spaces in each location
~ xx+ runs from 6pm Friday 14th October to 6pm Saturday 15th October 2016
There will be concurrent xx+ jams in Montreal & Toronto so we’ll be working alongside women in UK and Canada, expanding networks and meeting other women who are changing the games industry one step at a time.
If you would be interested in supporting the xx+ jam by being a volunteer mentor or tech support on the day then please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
REFIG is full of women who believe that the games industry has the capacity to deliver rich, meaningful, creative and stimulating cultural experiences that can also contribute new tools for education and new avenues for economic prosperity. A diverse, inclusive and representative workforce will ensure that it achieves this with opportunities for all.
