Hi folks, it’s jam time again! We are going to run a hybrid event: both virtual and venue based participation. We can’t wait to bring you our first in-person compatible jam since 2020! This event will also be part of the Wild Galway Games Initiative from Ardán and Galway City Council, look out for their theme on the day!

Theme: Wild

Ardán Theme: Wild Galway

Jammers who choose the Wild Galway theme will have their games included in the Wild Galway Games Initiative.


Carve these dates out of your calendar:

  • Day 1: Saturday 16th July - 10am - 6pm
    • Event information, Team formation
  • Day 2: Saturday 23rd July - 10am - 6pm (4pm submission)


Venue Description

We will be using the Portershed’s latest facility at Bowling Green, located in the heart of Galway city.

Here we will have access to an event space which contains desks, chairs, power and internet. So, please bring your own computer/laptop and cables. There are a few small booths available for use, including a sound treated streaming booth (a dream for you audio folks who like to record bespoke sounds and Voice Overs on the day!).

We will be streaming from the venue to our Twitch channel during the event, and a large screen will showcase our virtual jammers and stream right in the space. Hopefully we can collide the seperate worlds of the hybrid jam together even more for this one.
