GameCity: Modern Playing
A unique celebration of videogame culture all wrapped up in an evening of ideas, video, music and debate about videogames and gaming culture. Get a chance to meet creative people with diverse skills, ambitions and imaginations and see the latest demos of innovative games.
A Nottingham Trent University arts and humanities project, GameCity pioneers new ways to interact with videogame culture through art exhibitions, developers’ commentaries as well as playing the latest games from leading developers. Modern Playing will be a 90-minute event supported by an arcade, where regional developers will be able to showcase their work. The main body of the event will feature insightful, stimulating and thought-provoking talks and debates about videogame culture.
Iain Simons, director, GameCity said: “Modern Playing is the spirit of GameCity on the move. We will be creating a quarterly event to bring a TED-style atmosphere to videogames culture.”
“Modern Playing’s remit is to inspire thought and fire debate. It’ll be an evening of chat, networking and play that we’ll be building as an ongoing event. Modern Playing will support videogaming’s place in the heart of the British cultural life”.
