On Saturday, August 6th, Alterconf is coming to Dublin. As detailed on the conference’s site, AlterConf is a traveling conference series that provides safe opportunities for marginalized people and those who support them in the tech and gaming industries. By highlighting the powerful voices and positive initiatives of local community members, we build hope and strengthen the community’s resolve to create safer, healthier spaces for everyone.
The conferences go beyond the limited definitions and basic discussions of diversity to create a deeper, more nuanced conversation. Each conference features a wide range of speakers delivering critical analyses of tech and gaming culture and presenting their vision for what our community can be.
Dublin’s AlterConf will be hosted in Dogpatch Labs from 10AM to 4:30PM, and will feature a diverse group of speakers who will talk about diversity, personal experiences, and creating safe opportunities in the game and tech industries. Because some of the topics may include content that may trigger painful memories for some the schedule includes a list of potential triggers beneath each speaker’s presentation so that attendees can decide ahead of time whether to attend a particular talk.
Basic tickets are 19 Euro, and registration can be completed through the event website.
