GameCult Talks event #1: Equity in games and play
The Centre of Excellence in Game Culture Studies is launching a new event series titled "GameCult Talks: Discussing games in culture and society" on the Finnish Game Week! The events aim to create and strengthen dialogue between researchers and other societal actors on current game cultural topics in our culture and society. They will bring together game studies researchers, industry experts, cultural institutions, community representatives, activists, and policy makers to develop and highlight new initiatives into building sustainable game culture for our future.
The first event in the series, themed "Equity in games and play", will be organised on the Finnish Game Week (Peliviikko), on Friday 13 November from 12:00 to 16:00 EET/GMT+2. The event will offer concise 10-minute presentations from the CoE GameCult researches as well as various experts from the Finnish game industry, organisations, and communities to present different perspectives into equity in games, in Finland and globally, and to introduce various significant initiatives aiming to advance equity in the game industry and game cultures.
