A NEW EXHIBITION OF WORK BY BAME GAMES CREATIVES

Diverse talents and perspectives are vital for building more diverse digital worlds and creating the games of the future. We want to inspire the next generation of game developers from all backgrounds.

Ensemble highlights the work being done by games industry creatives from BAME (Black and Minority Ethnic) backgrounds. Curator Sharna Jackson brings together work by leading talent in the UK games industry including concept art, sketches, design documents, prototypes and more. 

 

Ensemble will be unveiled during the larger London Games Festival 2018, which runs from 5-15 April 2018 across the capital, before touring key games clusters in the UK. This includes two days at LGF’s HUB event in Bloomsbury on 9 & 10 April, and other activity to be announced.
