Friday, Dec 10, 7-8:30pm, in person and livestreamed
The world of video games is more than just franchise titles and big-name companies like Sony and Nintendo – in the shadow of these giants is a diverse and growing cohort of gamers, designers, developers and executives driving innovation in the art, tech, and narrative of a changing industry.
Opportunity and education play an enormous role in changing the face of video games, and Damon Packwood of Gameheads Oakland is working with some of the most influential people in the industry to train and help place young people of color in the video game industry who are often creating games independently. Whether you’re an avid gamer or not familiar with gaming at all, join Forum host Mina Kim and guest Damon Packwood for an interactive look at the gaming world and the next generation of gamers and game design.
