We are pleased to announce our second partnership project with The Indigenous Routes Collective to provide game design and development training for indigenous* women in Toronto.
As with all of DMG's programming, this workshop is open to two-spirit, trans and cis women, genderqueer, gender variant and nonbinary individuals.
The project will run Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons in April 2016 at Bento Miso (862 Richmond Street West).
Coordinators & mentors: Susan Blight, Archer Pechawis, Ben Donoghue, Jennie Robinson Faber, Meagan Byrne, Elizabeth LaPensée, Izzie Colpitts-Campbell
This program is free of charge to participants.
Deadline for applications has been extended to March 28.
Drawing on the experience of established indigenous media artists within the collective and Toronto community and the technical and game arts expertise provided by Dames Making Games, participants will be guided through process of conceptualizing and developing games. The course will start from the basics and requires no past experience, just a desire to learn and make games. Projects will be made individually and in collaboration, including collaborative projects with mentors. Finished games will be presented to the public in October 2016.
This project has been made possible through the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts – Media Arts Projects Grants.
* Aboriginal communities, First Peoples, and Indigenous nations are those that are self-identified as having a historical continuity with societies that developed on recognized territories before colonization or transformation of that region into a nation-state and may consider themselves distinct (with often unique cultural, linguistic, traditional, social and other characteristics) from other sectors of the societies or nation-states now prevailing on those territories.
