[Update: Looking for the 2014 Games for Change Festival (April 22-24)? Click here to see the schedule and register.]
Did you miss us? We’re back! And we’re celebrating our 10th Anniversary by moving to a big, new venue and putting a special focus on ensuring that developers interested in exploring more socially-motivated game design find a welcoming home.
Taking place June 17-19 at New World Stages in midtown Manhattan, everything will now take place under one roof.
As the largest gaming event in New York City, those of you who have been attending over the past several years know that it is the annual destination for those working at the intersection of social impact and games.
New in 2013…
- More opportunities for developers to demo their games
- A chance to play games specifically commissioned for the festival (thanks to an energetic team of students at Carnegie Mellon’s Entertainment Technology Center!)
- Access to the “marketplace” – a hub for service providers and publishers to showcase their latest offerings
- A sneak peek at games in development
- Social events (10th Anniversary Reception, Daily Happy Hours)
As always, we also have…
- Access to thought leaders in gaming and social change
- 40+ hours of programming
- Demo Spotlight, Games for Change Awards, Game Arcade
Watch for news in the coming weeks on some of the programming in collaboration with new partners: the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop, the David & Lucille Packard Foundation, and the Tribeca Film Institute.
Our application for speakers, talks, presentations and case studies will go live next week, along with the submission form for the Games for Change Awards.
