Different Games is an annual conference on diversity and inclusivity in games hosted in New York City and led by students and volunteers. The conference is presented by the NYU School of Engineering’s Integrated Digital Media Program in partnership with the Georgia Institute of Technology’s Digital Media Program, and will be held April 11th and 12th at the NYU MAGNET Center. Registration for the event is currently open on their website.
As game designers, academics, journalists and players operate in separate spheres, we see Different Games as an opportunity to share across and outside of professional boundaries. By presenting games, scholarship and hands-on workshops engaged with issues of diversity and inclusion we seek to build new connections and foster a unique dialogue between artistic, academic and commercial practice.
