LARPing In Color is an initiative to increase to connect LARPs and fantasy world builders with PoC and LGBTQ+ writers, sensitivity readers, and consultants across the world. We also plan to expand into disability and other underrepresented groups. LiC does by providing three services:
- Free general advice, resources, blogs, and eventually videos on representation in LARP and world building
- A growing and evolving list of sensitivity readers and consultants for anyone to reach out to and hire on a contract basis to help make your LARP, role-play forum, or table top campaign as diverse and inclusive as possible
- A scholarship program for creators who would like to hire one or more of our consultants, writers, or sensitivity readers, but cannot afford to do so.
IndieCade or Indiecade is an international juried festival of independent games. IndieCade is known as “the video game industry’s Sundance.” At IndieCade, independent video game developers are selected to screen and promote their work at the annual IndieCade festival and showcase events. In 2009, IndieCade launched a conference track featuring classes, panels, workshops, and keynotes. The conference has since become a major attraction for indie developers and others in the industry.
BostonFIG is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that celebrates independent game development in New England, across the United States, and around the globe. Our goal is to create an inclusive environment for everybody who enjoys and appreciates games in any shape or form. The organization seeks to support and showcase the efforts of independent game developers, as well nurture young aspiring game creators from diverse backgrounds.
Vision: To foster the next generation of game creators.
Mission: To create events, educational programs, and communities that enable every single person who wants to create games– or support game creation– the ability to do so.
