game girl workshop. 2010 – ongoing. Workshop concept.
A Game Girl Workshop is a short and intensive workshop where young girls are inspired to have fun with technology.
The girls get introduced to audio, graphic and coding programs in order to build their own computer game – based on their own imagination and experiences.
Interactive entertainment is tomorrow’s culture.
Women’s voices must be represented in our cultures.
Yet women are overwhelmingly underrepresented in the games and tech industries.
Andrea Brasch & Nevin Erönde began Game Girl Workshop as a response to the significant lack of women working in the games and technology industry.
Ultimately, the hope of Game Girl Workshop is for more women to be included and advance within the games and technology industry, thus helping to achieve a balance in the workforce and to create a multitude of game narratives.
They’ve held workshops in Denmark, Sweden, United Arab Emirates & Palestine.
Currently they are planning to return to the West Bank, to start and establish an ongoing project.
