2018 was an incredibly busy and prolific time for us. Our main activities included the Experimental Game Design Workshop series, Comics X Games, Camp Make-A-Game, Game Curious with Art Starts at Chester Le, the Hand Eye Society Ball, WordPlay, Fund Futures with Ontario Creates, and numerous other one-offs, partnerships, and socials in-between! And 2019 promises to be even more exciting, seeing as it’s just our 🎉 10 Anniversary 🎉 and all! Come out and see what we’ve accomplished and where we’re headed after a decade of playful arts and culture programming, with the help of our incredibly generous Membership, sponsors, partners, and of course, the community where it all happens. We would have never made it this far without you. Together, let’s shape the next 10 years of creative game-making and playing in Toronto!There were a lot of changes in 2017, some big, some small, some behind the scenes. We’ll be officially voting on the revised Conflict of Interest Policy we presented recently, which will be sent out to members along with the agenda. There’s been some great strides towards capacity-building and sustainability, with the generous support of our members, partners, and the overall community, as well as new challenges and problems to solve. We look forward to sharing our plans with you all, as well as hearing your ideas!
