DMG is a not-for-profit videogame arts organization that creates space for marginalized creators to make, play and critique videogames within a cultural context.
We teach computing skills for artistic expression, offer production and exhibition facilities, and provide community support for the creation of new artworks.
Our space and community is a platform and playground for artists working in games, engaging the public with the expressive potential of this medium.
