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.

This is part of the ReFig: Network in Play project that Aphra Kerr and Vicky Twomey-Lee are involved in – http://gamedevelopers.ie/diversity/

When: Sat Apr 7/14/28 2018

Duration: 11-4 with lunch provided.

Where: PorterShed (1st two workshops, 7 & 14 April) / Galway Technology Centre, Galway (3rd workshop, 28th April).

The three workshops are:-

  • Apr 7 – Charlene Putney – an interactive fiction/game narrative workshop followed by this 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, and any left over proceeds will be donated to COPE Galway.
