Dames Making Games

Dames Mak­ing Games was found­ed in 2012 to meet a demon­strat­ed need for more inclu­sive access to inde­pen­dent videogame arts and cul­ture by pro­vid­ing work space and resources to artists work­ing in the medium–especially those who are rarely afford­ed sup­port in tech and games spaces.
We high­light the sto­ries of diverse gamemak­ers through our speak­er series, work­shops and round-table events; demon­strate the val­ue and impact of diver­si­ty by cat­a­loging, exhibit­ing and dis­trib­ut­ing mem­bers’ work; and sup­port pro­duc­tion prac­tices through equip­ment loan­ing, part­ner­ships and new soft­ware development.
