This week we’ve been on the road, visiting Sheffield to meet with a local infrastructure provider, see a games co-working space that’s just opened, meet Sheffield Hallam and chat with Ian Goodall from Aardvark Swift about their many innovative skills programmes…
A lot has happened at the BGI over the last couple of weeks! With an exciting announcement, a trip to China and a top secret project in the works, things have been moving fast. Here’s what we’ve been up to:
We’re delighted to announce our first 2018 Continue event, at Headrow House Leeds on 27th April 2018 from 1.00pm – 6.00pm.
Continue brings together those who commission work in cultural spaces with independent videogame developers interested in producing work for display. It is your chance to hear about other people’s experience working on collaborative projects of this type, and get their advice on how to plan your own.
Continue Leeds will feature talks from local developers and commissioners, uncovering their experiences of Cultural Game projects.
Highlights include :
Alex Chisholm, Director of contemporary theatre company Freedom Studios, delves into the world of Virtual Reality, reflecting on her experience of working with York-based developer Beta Jester to capture the renovation of Bradford Odeon.
Director of Reflex Arc and three times BAFTA nominee, Richard England, who unveils his experiences responding to a commission for Leeds Light Night.
Charlotte Gore chat about her project ‘Yorkshire Gubbins’ and what it means to make a really local game…
Continue is about creating understanding and videogame literacy in the culture sector and vice-versa, always to end of getting things done. That’s why our events are accompanied by an online network, keeping you up to date on the latest news and developments.
Can’t make it to Leeds? Don’t worry, more dates around the UK will be announced very soon…
