The BGI plays a unique role in our sector and the wider arts world. The charity runs the UK’s only museum dedicated to videogames which has welcomed over 150,000 visitors. The museum holds a collection of 5,000 games heritage objects and Arts Council England decided to fund BGI to survive the pandemic from the Culture Recovery Fund. Its world-class experts publish frequently and work with many international partners. Dr Richard Wilson OBE, TIGA
