The 2019 Games for Change Festival

We are excited to invite you to the 16th Annual Games for Change Festival which will take place from June 17 - 19. This year, we will explore how games and immersive media can be leveraged as a means for civic engagement!  

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.  

Our program will be organized in four thematic tracks: We will kick things off with the XR for Change Summit on June 17, followed by two days of sessions on Games for Learning, Civics & Social Issues, and Health & Wellness.
