So they’re hosting a networking event on Tuesday, June 9, at at the Tim Faulkner Gallery, 1512 Portland Ave.“Artists and programmers don’t usually hang out.
They just don’t run in the same circles,” says Mommy’s Best Games President and Lead Designer Nathan Fouts.
“But if we can get them together in the same room, sharing their work, I know they’d get excited about making new games together! The event will be styled after “speed dating” events.
Artists will sit down with a programmer working on a game.
Meet and pose questions to an array of art personalities, from appropriation to Andy Warhol, but be quick—time with the bachelors and bachelorettes is limited!
Join Gen Wex, the center’s young patron initiative, on Valentine’s Day to get to know contemporary art movements, concepts, and artists.
At the end of the event, the artists and programmers will mingle and exchange contact information if interest arises. You’re required by the event to bring a sample of your game/art/music on a laptop to share.
If you have questions, here’s the Facebook page for the event.
Everyone is welcome to this lively Speed Dating event.
