York Mediale 2018 will co-curate and host this year’s Continue conference in partnership with the British Game Institute and in association with Pilot Theatre.
Continue is an initiative driven by the British Game Institute bringing together cultural commissioners and organisations with videogame practitioners and experts.
With ‘narrative’ as the theme for this year’s conference, York Mediale, Continue and Pilot Theatre are collaborating on a speaker line-up that includes acclaimed video game designer and BAFTA award winning creator of ‘Her Story’, Sam Barlow, artist and writer Leila Johnston, Gob Squad collective’s Sarah Thom and creative technologist Gorm Lai.
The conference will put practitioners and decision-makers from across the country in the same room to debate, explore and collaborate on key issues facing the game and culture industries. This year’s collaboration with York Mediale and Pilot will see Continue build on past successes as a launchpad for collaboration between cultural commissioners and videogame developers.
Continue is supported by the Arts Council, Creative England, and PlatformShift+, a Creative Europe Project.
