Event description

Description

Join us for the 2017 Game Devs of Color Expo and celebrate game developers of color! Play games by awesome creators as well as learn and share techniques for creating your own interactive media!

In our day-long event at the historic Schomburg Center, we will hold panels, talks, educational sessions, and an arcade – all featuring game developers of color. Hear discussions about the game development process, representation in games, and experiences within the games industry as people from different backgrounds in the large-capacity auditorium. Try out a selection of incredible games made by people of color in the spacious arcade.
