Have a game that you think will change the world? Want to chat about how your organization can get involved in social gaming for good? Get in touch with our new community manager, Meghan Ventura, to get start leveling up your ties with Games for Change.
As community manager, Meghan will cultivate Games for Change’s community presence and reach out to developers, designers, NGOs, academics and organizations interested in using games to promote and create change across myriad social issues. She’ll also be writing and blogging about games for social impact and wants to hear about your games for change-related projects.
Previously, she organized events for the Washington D.C. chapter of the International Game Developers Association and blogged about some of the talented people she met there and their work. She also assisted in planning and promoting two festivals and other events for DCGames, an urban and outdoor games advocacy group.
If you want to talk to her about things other than games for social good, then indie and Japanese games (preferably on a portable game system) are good bets. She enjoys things outside of videogames, too — yoga, reading, learning Japanese bit-by-bit, craft beer and Beagle ownership are all great places to start.
