Design Week 2024: The Power of Play

Annual Event,
Lecture / Panel,
Workshop / Training
Open to the Public


Design Week 2024 is a series of events centered around The Power of Play.

We aim to explore how games can contribute to our community beyond entertainment. With the rising role of games in education, social impact, healthcare, etc., we believe game design can be a powerful catalyst for positive changes within our community.

Throughout Design Week 2024, we will work to answer the following question: How might we unite diverse game design disciplines to create positive social impact?

We will be hosting events daily from February 12-16, including Virtual Production and Accessible Game Controller workshops, an interactive installation, a Listening Lab, and a panel with guest speakers from Riot Games, Respawn Entertainment, and more.
