In lieu of an onsite Women in Games event in 2020, The Strong will host a week-long online celebration of women’s contributions to the video game industry. From October 19 through 23, join The Strong’s International Center for the History of Electronic Games (ICHEG) team, historians, and curators online to celebrate the women who make games, the women who play games, and the women who have and continue to change the way we play, communicate, and think about the world.
The Strong’s week-long Women in Games celebration will feature:
• Inspiring virtual messages from leaders in the industry.
• An intimate online Zoom event that highlights innovators and provides a safe place to foster a conversation with the next generation of gamers and creators.
• Social media posts that highlight and link to unique archival materials in The Strong’s collection.
• Special blog posts related to Women in Games.
• And more!
We invite you to join us online as we celebrate the history, impact, and future of women in games. Follow ICHEG on Facebook and The Strong museum on Twitter. We look forward to once again hosting an onsite event in 2021.
