A series of Diversity in Games Workshops at PorterShed and Galway Technology Centre will take place in April. It’s aimed at people who’ve never made games before but people with all skill levels are welcome. They’d love to have people from different backgrounds attending also.
When: Sat Apr 7/14/28
Where: PorterShed (1st two workshops) / Galway Technology Centre, Galway (3rd workshop)
Apr 7 – Charlene Putney – an interactive fiction/game narrative workshop followed by this workshop
Apr 14 – Robin O’Keefe – a board-game design workshop
Apr 28 – Tracey McCabe – an intro to games development with Unity3D
Join us tonight at our space at Insight for a Maker’s Meetup.
To all members, just a reminder that our AGM is tonight at Insight from 7pm. Like always it’s important to have a good turnout from the community so everyone gets a voice in proceedings. The agenda is linked in the AGM thread in our mailing list.
See you there!
091 Labs will be holding a members EGM this Monday at 8pm. This is going to be an important meeting so it’s essential that members attend to have their input heard. For any members who cannot make it for Monday, an editable Agenda and discussion thread is available on our Mailing List. All input and attendance is, as always, appreciated. See you all on Monday evening!
Note: There is an unfortunate error in our advertised activities for tonight. The fantastically talented folks from Galway Pub Scrawl won’t actually be joining us for an exhibition this year. If you’re interested in seeing what they get up to, you should absolutely drop by their next meetup on Monday the 28th of September in McSwiggans from 8.30pm to say hello. Bring some pencils and paper, or your sewing/craft project or just sit in for a chat, everyone is welcome. Apologies for any confusion caused.
Culture Night is taking place around the country tonight and 091 Labs are getting involved alongside some amazing events here in Galway City! There’ll be Arduino and electronics workshops, member projects, board games and more so drop by. Don’t forget to visit the Culture Night site for what’s on in Galway as there’s a huge range of events, from vintage gaming at The Computer and Communications Museum of Ireland to music – and all free.
