2019 & beyond…

We’re shifting:

New venue for First Tuesday meetups is the Pervasive Media Studio in Watershed, so very central and also accessible.

New demographic for our members who now range in age from 13 upwards, as a repsonse to all the teenage grrrls we met on the DeedsNotWords project for Bristol Women’s Voice in 2018. We wanted to keep giving them a space to meet and share and make games, even if only for a couple of hours a month.

New times but same days ~ still First Tuesdays but now 4.30-6pm for 13+ years and 6.30-8pm for 16+ years. No upper age limit for any session. And then the 18+ can convene in Watershed bar…

New website so that we can keep sharing tips and tricks on making games with all those grrrls who are too shy to come out and meet in person, and also to showcase the amazing set of skills and talents of all the Grrrl Gamers of all ages. So head on over to Grrrlgames.org and see what we are up to – this wordpress site is now wound down.

BIG THANKS to Bristol Women’s Voice for funding the workshops in 2018 and enabling us to create a new and very useful website for grrrls making games.

Suffragette Landmarks

Hello all, with my Grrrl Games hat on I am running the Suffragette Landmark Games project for Bristol Women’s Voice this summer. It’s a series of jam-style workshops bringing young women aged 13-18 together to have a go at making games inspired by suffragette stories in Bristol (UK)

I am looking for women in games who are up for coming to Bristol to talk games/careers with participants.

First workshop is 10th July, others will run Mon/Tues/Weds from 16th July til 8th August.

Let me know if you would like to support the project in any way – you can always email me on info@prettydigital.co.uk

cheers!

Constance

nb There will be some public talks and exhibitions in October/November that will be open to all to come along and marvel at the games. Am also on the look out for freebies and stuff, from stickers to tshirts to offers of feeback and mentoring from games developers when the games are nearer to being finished. All offers and suggestions welcome.
