It’s looking like the next few months are going to be busy — I’m going to be doing more traveling between now and the summer than I have over the past year.
Here are two events that are confirmed:
In a little under two weeks, I’ll be heading down to the bay area for my first Game Developers Conference. I’m not giving any talks, but I’m looking forward to meeting new folks and spending time with friends and sweeties in the area. I’ll be around from the 23rd to the 30th — if anyone’s going to be in town and would like to meet up, please let me know.
In April I’m headed to the Different Games conference on diversity and inclusion in digital games, where my game lim is being shown. I’d heard about this conference months ago and it sounded like something I’d love to attend, but I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to afford the flight to New York City. At the urging of some friends, I put out a crowdfunding call and received the $400 to cover my flight within hours. Once again I’m blown away by the generosity and support coming out of my twitter communities.
And two that I’m waiting to hear back on:
anna anthropy and I submitted a workshop on making games to the Allied Media Conference taking place in June. I’ve heard so much about it in the past and I’d be thrilled if our proposal is accepted to the Imagining Better Futures Through Play track.
Finally, Tobi Hill-Meyer and I submitted a proposal to Gender Odyssey, an annual Seattle conference on gender diversity. Our workshop is going to look at the history of trans representation in games and talk about the ways that trans folks have begun to create our own imagery in the medium.
