Join Us to Celebrate 15 years of Games for Change
Did you know that the very first Games for Change was a half-day event, with a handful of featured games and only 42 attendees? 15 years later, we will spend 3 days celebrating dozens of games and hosting more than 1,000 attendees from academia, government, media & technology, nonprofits, health, social & civic organizations, and the games industry. This evolution could not have taken place without the incredible work of our uniquely passionate, dedicated community.
To celebrate our anniversary, we hope you will join us in person and online to help reflect on the past 15 years. Join the conversation on Twitter and Facebook to share your favorite G4C memories by tagging us and using the hashtag #Happy15thG4C.

Contribute to the G4C 15th Anniversary
Games for Change and Barry Joseph, co-founder of G4C and the Associate Director for Digital Learning American Museum of Natural History, has a special request:
In recognition of the G4C Festival’s 15th year, we want YOU to send us something, anything, from the first 14 years of the festival that has significance to you! Whether it’s an old conference badge, a photo at the arcade, or some festival swag you keep by your desk, we’re looking for any artifact you can share. During this year’s Festival, you and other attendees will have the opportunity to curate this Pop-up Museum – designing exhibits, writing copy, scripting tours, building games – and your donation, if selected, will be on display over the course of the Festival. If your item is a prized possession, you’ll have a chance to reclaim it at the end of the Festival.
