For the fourth year in a row we are incredibly pleased to announce a partnership with the phenomenal organization “I Need Diverse Games” to help cover the costs of diverse applicants in their attempts to make it to Vector ’19! This scholarship helps cover ticket admission costs for any participants who would like to come (lunch is provided as well through the ticket price) and we hope that this eases a pathway for anyone who is on the fence on attendance.
From their website:
I Need Diverse Games via all associated platforms and members; including but not limited to: Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and other mediums seeks to bring projects, works and research by marginalized folks to light. We also seek to discuss, analyse, and critique identity and culture in video games through a multi-faceted lens rooted in intersectionality.
We are very excited to once again be working with an organization that seeks to promote underserved and marginalized voices in the game industry. If you’re a person who feels that they identity under that banner (be it through sexual orientation, gender, skin color, etc) please contact us. If you, or anyone you know, is interested in coming to Vector 2019 and doesn’t yet have a ticket please let us know at vector (at) runjumpdev.org.
If you do not currently have a ticket for Vector 2019 and would like to purchase one, you can do so here.
