Event description

Description

Mark November 9-10th in your calendars, because TAG’s GAMERella is happening again this year! This will be our 6th year and as always 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, board or hybrid) game.

As always, there will be workshops, mentors, snacks and an amazing keynote speaker to make sure you are inspired, supported and feel safe!

THEME?

RUMBLE
Feel free to interpret it in any way you want. The theme is there to inspire you and not to restrict in any way!

WORKSHOPS?

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.

Dates, sign-up and more info coming available at tag.hexagram.ca/gamerella/
