EMPOWERING GAME CREATORS AND SOCIAL INNOVATORS TO DRIVE REAL-WORLD IMPACT THROUGH GAMES

We convene our community through the Annual Games for Change Festival, the largest industry-facing event in New York City. We inspire youth to explore civic issues and learn 21st-century and STEM skills through our Student Challenge and we train educators to run game design classes on impact games. We incubate and executive produce game projects through our game design challenges, workshops and consulting projects. We curate and evangelize games to the public through our public arcades and award shows.
