What is this?
This is a calendar of game developer events. Each month, a new person connected to the Swedish games industry, who does not identify themselves as a man, is highlighted.
Why are you doing this?
- To highlight role models who are not currently the norm on the games industry, to hopefully encourage more people to pursue a gamedev career.
- To create a calendar of all gamedev events of the Swedish games industry, so people know what’s going on.
- To raise money for charity.
Why no men?
There is already an international calendar with men of the games industry, namely this one. You can even cuddle up with a physical copy of it! We wanted to go in a different direction.
Why is the focus Sweden?
Mainly for logistical reasons (we don’t want to use too many different photographers, for example), and it would get quite cluttered if we would add all events of the entire industry. There is however this page, if you are interested in seeing what is going on in other parts of the world.
Who are the people behind this calendar?
The idea was conceived by Anna Jenelius, and is run with the help of Gemma Thomson.
