Game Arts International Network (GAIN)

The Game Arts Inter­na­tion­al Net­work (GAIN) is a reg­is­tered not-for-prof­it focused on inter­con­nect­ing exist­ing game arts orga­ni­za­tions and nur­tur­ing new struc­tures in emerg­ing regions. As games are increas­ing­ly rec­og­nized for their cul­tur­al val­ue, local col­lec­tives and orga­ni­za­tions with a focus on games as a form of cre­ative expres­sion have begun to emerge all over the world. These enti­ties have the poten­tial to be an endur­ing resource for cre­ators in this field if they’re able to meet the chal­lenges of sus­tain­abil­i­ty and renewal.

GAIN STAKEHOLDERS include game arts orga­niz­ers and cura­tors in Los Ange­les, Mon­tre­al, Buenos Aires, Van­cou­ver, Madrid, Ottawa, Austin, Seat­tle, Tel Aviv, Hal­i­fax, New York, Berlin, Mel­bourne, Port­land, Reyk­javík, Pitts­burgh, Lon­don, Boston, Copen­hagen, Cape Town and Toronto.
