Girl Geek Academy in conjunction with the City of Port Phillip is hosting Australia’s first Gender Equality Game Jam! Come and spend a weekend with us and help to create games of any genre or platform that address gender equality issues such as stereotypes and gendered drivers towards violence against women and all marginalised genders.
Firstly, you’ll join us for a workshop on Wednesday 4 September @ 6pm to hear from a range of health & games industry professionals to learn more about the drivers of inequality and how games can challenge these issues. Then on Saturday 14 September the jam kicks off at 9am – we’ll match your skills to a team of 3-4 other games practitioners and you’ll have until Sunday afternoon to create a game ready for the public to play. Plus you’ll be invited to showcase your game at our community space at PAX in October!
Along the way we’ll fuel you with delicious food, give you access to amazing mentors and at the end we’ll finish with a play party to celebrate and share your hard work.
