Prototyping with GAME JAMS

Hosted by LEEDS 2023

LEEDS 2023 is hosting a 10-day GAME JAM! It’s time to test, collaborate and prototype some extraordinary new ideas.

Prototyping with GAME JAMS will bring together artists, game designers and academics to chat all about the value of pilot projects and GAME JAMS.

Here you’ll get an introduction to the rules of our GAME JAM and three short briefs designed by artists that will be used as the inspiration and the subject matter. For the second half of the event, we’ll open the floor and talk about the importance of GAME JAMS and smash apart the stereotype that gaming is antisocial.

Whether you’re taking part in the GAME JAM or interested in learning more about it, we’d love to have you there!

This event is part of Leeds Digital Festival 2021.
