Mark November 12-13th in your calendars, because TAG’s GAMERella is happening again this year! Just like last year and the year before, GAMERella is inviting self-identified women, gender non conforming game makers, people with different abilities as well as anyone who feels they haven’t had a chance to make a (video or board) game.
As always, there will be workshops, mentors, snacks and an amazing keynote speaker to make sure you are inspired, supported and feel safe!
This year’s theme is "inter/section"
The organizers of GAMERella wish to help any doubtful participants discover their hidden game-making talents. As a result, TAG, has created five workshops involving the use of free or almost-free software, to be held at Concordia University in preparation for the event. The material in these workshops cover game making, audio and visual art.
