Dames Making Games is a not-for-profit organization founded in Toronto in 2012. We run a wide range of programs and events for women, non-binary, gender nonconforming and queer folks interested in games. We are member-run and member-funded, arts-focused, technology positive, and collaborative.
We also support our members interested in exhibiting or commercializing their games, providing free workspace, mentorship, marketing and business support, hiring and recruitment help, and publishing and production services.
