• G4C Talk & Play series: A recently launched lecture and game arcade series. We were honored to host our initial events with Jane McGonigal, YouTube stars, and game developers at YouTube Space LA, and tech innovation community PopTech.
• Public Arcades: Our arcades bring the work of game developers addressing positive social change and learning to new audiences and unexpected contexts. We’ve featured games at Tribeca Family Festival Street Fair, the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, YouTube Space LA, and more.
• Game design challenges and a yet-to-be-announced project. : )
