John L. Tishman Auditorium, University Center 63 Fifth Avenue, Room U100, New York, NY 10003

We are thrilled to invite you to the 15th Annual Games For Change Festival which will take place from June 28 - 30. This will be the most exciting Festival yet, as G4C will celebrate the past 15 years of groundbreaking work from the games for impact community, while exploring the cutting-edge developments that continue to push social impact games into the future.

Join a community of game experts, developers, technologists, funders and social innovators to share groundbreaking ideas and interact with new impact games and immersive media. Attendees will also engage in three days of thought-provoking conversations, workshops, and networking events.

Back this year: The XR for Change Summit (formerly called VR for Change Summit). After a wildly successful first event, we will return as XR for Change, which aims to include all forms of emerging media. On June 30, the XR4C Summit will explore how these immersive technologies offer new ways to create positive social impact.

The festival offers four tracks of programming:

  • Civics & Social Impact
  • Neurogaming & Health
  • Games for Learning Summit
  • XR for Change Summit (on June 30)

NEW SCHOOL STUDENTS: Limited free tickets available with code PARSONS18The code should be entered in the top-right of the ticket selection window BEFORE selecting a ticket.
