Games Art does exactly what it says on the tin; art that uses, abuses and misuses the materials and language of games, whether real world, electronic or both.
The Games Art networking event will bring together artists, gamers, hackers, theorists, curators, activists, thinkers and doers. People who work and play with games, videogames and playful practice of all kinds.

What Will Happen?
The event kicks off with presentations after which there will be heated discussion. Refreshments follow, and we’ll encourage you all to take part in an informal show and tell, so bring along some representation of your work, websites, objects, prototypes, whatever you have (within reason!) We will round off the event with an open mic session of quickfire presentations; present your own or other's work, offer services and skills to other projects or make a request for help with getting stuff done.
Because of limited space we can only accommodate 40 visitors for this event. Please book your place - first come, first served. Projectors and wireless access to the Internet will be provided, please let us know if you have any other special requirements.To find out more and book your place please email [email protected]
