Grrrl Games is for women* interested in the field of game development. We meet up on the first Tuesday of every month in Bristol, for talks, practical sessions and group discussions on all areas of gaming.
We aim to provide a friendly, open, supportive forum for women at all levels in the games industry (or who are eager to get into it!) to share their thoughts and add their voices to the conversations around games.
We are also looking to establish and run more events in Bristol and beyond. This includes games jams, training sessions and talks – if you would like to support us to do this or run similar events and would like to partner, please get in touch!
*We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified.
First Tuesday is a welcoming get-together for women working in games, whatever their level of experience. It’s a chance to share ideas or work-in-progress, get feedback and network, so bring along your game projects and plans.
What game would you like to have played when you were 9?
Come and make it in ONE DAY at our Grrrl Games Jam in Bristol! We are inviting women, transgender and non-binary people who identify as female to come and make a game for your 9-year-old self.
No background in tech or previous programming experience is needed – we need artists, sound designers, organisers, writers – and of course enthusiasm! People will be on hand to help out where you need it.
We advise you to bring a brownbag lunch to the jam on Saturday. A small suggested donation of £3 will cover snacks and refreshments, with any money leftover going towards future events!
The event will kick off on Saturday at 10am, although we encourage people to arrive from 9.30am to get settled in the space and meet your fellow jammers. It will finish at 6pm.
