  • The (opens in a new tab)IWGB Game Workers branch will be running an Organising 101 workshop, where those working in the games industry (or with aspirations to do so) can learn how to start organising their workplace. There will also be a panel session on organising the games industry.
  • All the games submitted from the jam - digital and board games - will also be playable for the first time, alongside food, drinks and great company.

This is just the tip of the iceberg - we’ll have more speakers and events to announce as we get closer to 28 May. Keep an eye on (opens in a new tab)TWT’s Twitter feed to stay updated!
