The Brooklyn Gamery will organize the Game Devs of Color Expo this spring, to help people from underrepresented racial communities get a leg up into the game design industry.
The event will feature panel discussions, talks, educational sessions, and an arcade, each with and by game developers of color.
“Hear discussions about the game development process, representation in games, and experiences within the games industry as people from different backgrounds in the large-capacity auditorium,” according to the event. “Try out a selection of incredible games made by people of color in the spacious arcade.”
