Gaming for All: A Women in Games Celebration

Join The Strong National Museum of Play and Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) for a special evening of big-kid fun to celebrate and share the contributions of women, people of color, differently-abled people, the LGBTQIA+ community, and other under-represented groups to the world of video games!

At 6:15 p.m., gather in the Paychex Theater for micro presentations and a panel discussion with trailblazers from the video game industry. Then, explore the entire museum including the new ESL Digital Worlds, Age of Empires, and World Video Game Hall of Fame exhibits.

The event also includes:

  • Complimentary ‘gamer’ snacks and nonalcoholic beverages
  • A chance to meet local game developers and try out their games presented by ROC Game Dev
  • Live video-game-themed music from Glitch
  • Exclusive offering of playable video games created and/or inspired by people of color, the LGBTQIA+ community, and other underrepresented groups
  • Explore The Strong’s all new ESL Digital Worlds exhibits, the new home of our Women in Games exhibit
