2017 Game Devs of Color Expo
Sat, June 24, 2017, 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM EDT
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.
The 2017 Game Devs of Color Expo is open to people of all genders, races, and sexual orientations. We want this to be a safe space to express yourself. Please let us know if there’s anything we can do to make you feel comfortable attending this event.
We have over 20 speakers who will talk about game development, the industry, representation in games, and more. You can see the schedule on our website. We've got a list of games you'll be able to play, too!
Doors will open at 11AM and close at 6PM. The arcade will be open from noon to 5:30PM.
We need volunteers to help show games by developers of color outside New York City. Volunteers will receive free admission and help to show games at our expo on June 24, 2017. People who volunteer for the full event will be compensated with a gift card, food, and beverages.
If you will be available to help set up and show a game, fill out this application form. Application period closes on April 30, 2017.
