Dames Making Games is a not-for-profit videogame arts organization founded in Toronto in 2012. We run a wide range of programs and events for women, non-binary, gender nonconforming and queer folks interested in games. We are member-run, arts-focused, technology positive, and collaborative.
We also support our members interested in exhibiting or commercializing their games, providing free workspace, mentorship, marketing and business support, hiring and recruitment help, and publishing and production services.
Whether you become a member, volunteer your time and expertise, make a financial contribution as an individual or orgnizational sponsor, or provide services and equipment to contribute to our long-term growth and sustainability, your support has a huge impact on our success!
