Damage Camp is a festival of games and ideas, celebrating the diversity and talent within the Toronto community. Damage Camp was created out of a desire to provide a space for our Dames Making Games members and the larger Toronto games community to gather, talk craft, showcase our work and share with each other in order to grow!

Damage Camp prioritizes upholding diverse voices within the games community in Toronto. Have fun, support and uplift each other, and come together to celebrate the unique games scene in our city.

I am on the planning and programming committee for Damage Camp.
