The #G4C18 Festival Program is Live



More than 100 speakers from around the world will take you behind the scenes of groundbreaking games, to the front lines of top development challenges and into the future with cutting edge research. Join us to be inspired, get informed and celebrate 15 years of impact at the #G4C18 Festival!

New Sessions Have Been Announced:

Through the process of making Asylum Seeker, Sisi Wei (ProPublica) and Nicholas Fortugno (Playmatics) will explore the meaning of truth in games for investigative journalism
In a workshop based on the board game Factuality, participants will discuss and unpack the structural limitations and advantages that coincide with various intersecting identities
Game developers from Classcraft will lead a group of students as they demonstrate how classroom-based learning games are a feasible option to fully replace traditional methods of instruction




Games for Change and Barry Joseph, Co-Founder of G4C and the Associate Director for Digital Learning at the American Museum of Natural History, have 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 donate.
Items collected from previous G4C Festivals considered for the first ever Games for Change Pop-up Museum. 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.
Now’s the time to give back, literally.




Calling all volunteers! We would like to invite you, our G4C community, to participate at the #G4C18 Festival! Submit an application in the link below and join us in making new friends, expanding your network, and supporting the impact games and social change communities.




We are still accepting submissions for the Games for Change Marketplace, a B2B expo that invites companies, game studios, and organizations to share their work with over 1100 attendees. Spots are filling up quickly, so be sure to apply now!
