Different Games 2015
April 3, 2015 - April 4, 2015
Different Games 2015- Conference, New York, USA.
From the website:
Different Games is an annual volunteer-lead conference on diversity and inclusivity in games presented by NYU School of Engineering’s Integrated Digital Media Program with support from the Georgia Institute of Technology’s Digital Media Program and The NYU Game Center of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts
As designers, academics, critics and players operate in separate spheres, we see Different Games as an opportunity to share across and outside of professionalized boundaries. By presenting games, writing and hands-on workshops engaged with issues of diversity and inclusion we seek to build new connections and foster dialogue between multiple forms of practice towards a shared goal. We welcome folks from all corners of our community invested in games as creative, critical tools and committed to seeing games reflect the complexity, depth and diversity of everyone.
Submission deadline call for proposals: Feb 1, 2015. More info on the DG website.
Submission Categories: Arcade, Paper Presentations & Talks, Breakout or Workshop Session
