We are going on tour with our Network in Play Workshops!
In April 2018 Network in Play and our partners are running three workshops for beginners in Galway which are female friendly and inclusive. This follows on from our diversity workshops in Dublin in the summer of 2016.
When: Sat Apr 7/14/28 2018
Duration: 11-4 with lunch provided.
Where: PorterShed (1st two workshops, 7 & 14 April) / (note change of venue) Galway Technology Centre, Galway (3rd workshop, 28th April).
The three workshops are:-
***Apr 7 – Charlene Putney – an interactive fiction/game narrative workshop
***Apr 14 – Robin O’Keefe – a board-game design workshop
***Apr 28 – Tracey McCabe – an intro to games development with Unity3D
Level: These workshops are aimed at over 18s who are complete beginners with no prior experience of game development. We are particularly keen to attract women, people from diverse creative backgrounds, people who are unemployed and people of colour.
Price of workshops start from €10 (incl. lunch), with deductions for unemployed, students and attendance at more than one workshop.
Any left over proceeds will be donated to COPE Galway.
All materials and technology provided. Just bring yourselves.

Safer Space Polices and Codes of Conduct
We have developed our own Code of Conduct within inputs from our network partners. See here. Comments and suggestions welcome. This is a work in progress.
Our colleagues in our ‘parent’ Refiguring Innovation in Games Network have developed a Safer Space policy. We will be adopting this also for our events. See here.
Our partners include the people from Coding Grace who have a lot of experience running diversity friendly events in Ireland. Their Code of Conduct can be found here.
