Last year, we held our first Continue conference, and it was a huge success. We were joined by the Arts Council, the BBC, and numerous videogame developers and arts practitioners to talk about why videogames are culturally important and how we can ensure more people get to experience them. Collaborations were formed, discussions were had and ideas were shared.
This year, on the 23rd and 24th May 2017, we’re doing it all over again! Some of our previous delegates are joining us again as speakers, while some of our speakers will be visiting the NVA for the first time when they deliver their talks. We have attendees from the British Council, British Library and V&A to name just a few, plus the usual mix of artists and developers who work with digital and videogame technology to produce unique and intriguing games and playable art.
As before, Continue will be a playable conference, with plenty of opportunities to get hands on with the NVA’s unusual exhibits. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to meet with other stakeholders, policymakers, developers and curators eager to help videogames secure their place in our cultural heritage.
