YOU ARE INVITED TO THE
GAME MIXER GAME CAMP

Friday 17 November & Saturday 18 November 2017
9.30am – 6pm daily
Goethe-Institut South Africa, Parkwood, Johannesburg
RSVP until 3 Nov to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The GameCamp operates just like like a barcamp. A barcamp is a so-called unconference, in which every participant is also a speaker and no tracks and sessions are planned beforehand. At the start of Day 1, each participant can suggest a topic they would like to give a session on. This could be anything from a presentation, a workshop, a panel discussion or even an interpretive dance. The only rule is that it has to be done in 45 minutes. Every attendee can suggest a talk. If there is not enough room, talks can be moved to the second day.
To give you an idea, what a talk might look like, for example, we had a workshop for “Self-defence against the Undead” as well as a “How to approach the press?” in Munich. So really, there are no limits to what you can do and talk about.
Yes! You need to be at least 16 years-old (anyone below that age will have to bring a guardian) and should be interested in video games. In the best case you can contribute to the programme, so ideally you are a nerd of some sorts and want to talk about something that you care about. You do not have to be part of the GameMixer program to participate in GameCamp.
GameCamp is free!
Apart from buckets of enthusiasm, here are a few nice to haves:
Usually, a session lasts 45 minutes, so you’ll have time for chats, bathroom and drinks breaks. Here’s the full schedule:
Schedule Day 1 (17 November)

Game Mixer brings together creative game developers from all over the world. The Goethe-Institut in cooperation with the German Video Game Awards and the Stiftung Digitale Spielekultur bring together German video game creatives with the rest of the world. In the past, the programme included Indonesia and Brazil, from which some developers are joining the German delegation as well. Apart from the Game Camp, there will also be a showcase of all games open to the broad public. More information about it can be found on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/835020706665393/. The hashtag for the event is #gamemixer.
Partners of the Goethe-Institut in this project are Digital Gaming Culture Foundation, BIU – Bundesverband Interaktive Unterhaltungssoftware, GAME – Bundesverband der deutschen Games-Branche, A.MAZE Festival Johannesburg, Interactive Entertainment South Africa (IESA), Fak’ugesi African Digital Innovation Festival and Wits Digital Arts Department. The project is funded by the Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany.
