Dames Making Games launches Damage Camp, a conference for Toronto’s games community
May 8, 2017
Call for Mentors
Dames Making Games, the Toronto-based video game arts nonprofit founded in 2012 to support nonbinary people and trans and cis women interested in developing games as creative expression, will hold its first conference on September 30 at the Toronto Media Arts Centre (36 Lisgar Street, Toronto). TMAC is a 30,000 sq. ft. hub for games, film, video and interactive arts in the heart of Queen West, and the future home of the organization.
Damage Camp will feature a single track of talks from 12 Toronto- and Montreal-based artists, developers and researchers working in mainstream and independent games, highlighting connections between the arts and cultural community and Canada’s booming tech and games industries. An arcade of 16 new and unreleased games, including Laundry Bear Games’ A MORTICIAN’S TALE, Crows Crows Crows’ LAUNDRY HILL, Aether Interactive’s LOCALHOST, and more will be open throughout the conference.
Conference highlights include:
According to Jennie Robinson Faber, DMG executive director, "Toronto is a thriving hub for independent and mainstream video games, driven by a pool of exceptionally diverse creatives working in the arts and on the commercial side. DMG is thrilled to bring the people and ideas behind Toronto's unique ecosystem together."
"This conference is for anyone interested in the people who create amazing games, run great studios, and make Toronto's community so inclusive and open," Damage Camp organizing committee member Kaitlin Tremblay said.
Conference tickets are available at damage.camp for $75. The reception, featuring new VR works by DMG’s summer intensive cohort, opens the event on September 29. Tickets are $15.
DMG is grateful to Uken Games, Ubisoft Toronto, and Interactive Ontario for their financial support of Damage Camp.
With more than 400 members in Toronto and 100+ annual programs and events, DMG is the world’s largest and most active nonprofit video game arts organization. DMG creates space for genderqueer, nonbinary, femmes, Two Spirit people, and trans and cis women to create games freely; and provides a wide range of free events, workshops, equipment, financial resources and services to its membership and the broader community. dmg.to
