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 safe!
SIGN UP AT http://gamerella2016.eventbrite.ca
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.
