A Video Game Development Program for Indigenous Girls Aged 13-18
Presented by the Indigenous Routes Collective and Dames Making Games
The Indigenous Routes Collective is pleased to announce an innovative partnership project with Dames Making Games providing programing and game development training for indigenous* girls aged 13-18 in Toronto. The project will run for 10 evenings and two weekends between March and June 2015 at Bento Miso (862 Richmond Street West).
Drawing on the experience of established indigenous media artists within the collective and Toronto community and the technical and gaming expertise provided by Dames Making Games participants will be guided through process of conceptualizing and programing games. The course will move from the ground up and requires no past programing experience, just a desire to learn and make games. Projects will be made individually and in collaboration, including collaborative projects with mentors. Finished games will be presented to the public as an arcade in October 2015.
