Lighthouse is partnering with world-class games designers, Hide&Seek, to stage an intensive Game Jam to build new games for Brighton Digital Festival. Young people will develop a series of new games to be showcased at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery as part of Digital Late at the end of September.
Young people from two local schools – Brighton Aldridge Community Academy and Portslade Aldridge Community Academy – teachers, creatives and games designers from Hide & Seek will work together on the development of a series of new games.
Some of these new games made in our Game Jam will be in the form of Hide & Seek’s Tiny Games – small, quick-to-understand games, that sit in the real world, inviting participation. The games will have an inherently Brighton flavour, and will be showcased at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery as part of the Digital Late event.
Game Jam is part of Art at Work, a two-year programme of activities that builds the confidence, skills and knowledge of young people through workshops, events and projects. Art at Work is a collaboration between Lighthouse, Photoworks, The Aldridge Foundation, Brighton and Portslade Aldridge Community Academies, and Brighton & Hove City Council. It is supported by Arts Council England.
