Women in Games Corporate Ambassador Creative Assembly has once again underlined its commitment to supporting students, young people and education as it teams up with Gamesindustry.biz later this month to host a student academy.
The GI Live: Academy is a free, digital-only event that takes place in Discord on October 26th – 28th. It will see industry professionals, including a few well-known faces, drop into a Discord channel to take part in roundtables, to advise students on pathways into video games, to review portfolios, and to share insight into what they do.
There will also be a series of keynotes speakers, who will join a line-up of programmers, artists, producers, musicians, journalists, voice actors and many more for three days of expert advice. Students can sign-up for free right here.
“This marks the third year of the GI Live: Academy Student Conference which we have been the main sponsor for since it began,” said Creative Assembly’s Director of Talent and Social Impact, Emma Smith.
“We strongly believe that giving free, global student access to industry experts leads to a stronger, more creative and diverse industry. Through this conference we can reach many more students, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds who do not usually have the opportunity to attend games conferences.”
