Abertay University and V&A Dundee invite you to get involved in a weekend of interactive creativity, at the Operas and Bridges Game Jam!

When V&A Curator Marie Foulston, was developing the exhibition Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt, she was inspired by a quote from a Frank Lantz (Director, NYU Game Center) who said, “Making a game combines everything that’s hard about building a bridge with everything that’s hard about composing an opera. Games are basically operas made out of bridges.”

This quote beautifully encapsulates the complexity and creativity that is present in this fascinating design discipline - and we would like to challenge YOU to put your skills and imagination to the test at this very unique Game Jam.

We invite artists, sound designers, game designers and programmers to team up and immerse themselves in this creative environment, taking inspiration from the exhibition and museum collections to create some interactive play.

There will be a public sharing event following the jam from 14:00 to 16:00 on Sunday.
