Manifesto

Game Happens is curated
We play what we like. We share what we love.
We highlight what inspires us most.

Game Happens is independent
Our endorsements represent our beliefs.
Our decisions are not influenced by external interests.

Game Happens is transdisciplinary
Because games are a complex art form.
Because different disciplines must work together to investigate them.

Game Happens is a political statement
As creators we are accountable for the meaning of our work.
As curators we are accountable for the space we build.

Game Happens is international
There are no barriers to creativity.
There are no borders to collaboration.

The financial support we seek allow us to organise our events.
The financial support we receive is fully invested in our events.

Everyone is welcome. Everyone is respected.
We value diversity.
