Reset gaming - Set equality

Application period 4.5.-5.6..2022

Apply now
Do you love games? So do we! We also believe that games and gaming should be an equally good experience for everyone.

The game industry is thriving – it is now bigger than the movie and music industries combined! However there are still many challenges within the game industry and gaming communities, especially when it comes to inclusivity and accessibility.

Enter: Gam-e-quality

Gam-e-quality is an event series that consists of a speaker event organized in April 2022, and two hackathon weekends in June 2022. Hackathons are held live in Helsinki, in the spaces of Maria 01

The goal of Gam-e-quality is to increase awareness about challenges in the game industry and gaming communities, as well as to create concrete solutions to them. Gam-e-quality also aspires to create a positive change within gaming communities and strengthen the sense of inclusivity.

Anyone can apply to this hackathon; individuals, friend groups or teams. The most important is that you are interested in gaming and equality, and that you want to be a part of positive change in the gaming world. We believe that anyone – whether you are an esports professional, a couch gamer or something in between – can be a part of a positive change in the gaming world. You don’t need to have a concrete idea in mind beforehand – a desire to make a difference is more than enough.
