Game Devs of Color Expo

2018 – present. New York City.

Game Devs of Color Expo is an inclusive games expo and conference that features creators from across a spectrum of backgrounds showing off their games, building culture, and pushing games forward as an artform.

The 3rd annual event had over 550 participants. The games expo featured over 25 studios, and the conference featured over 25 speakers.
