“It’s A Little Weird, But We’ll Deal” – A GLITCHCON 2017 Post-Mortem
Evva Kraikul

GLITCH CONNECT is an arts and cultural festival celebrating digital games and play.

Attendees explored two packed days of powerful keynotes, panels, arcades, exhibits, and quests. The festival serves as a catalyst for digital innovation and attracts 700+ makers, doers, and thinkers in video games from all over U.S.

GLITCH’s Co-Founder and Executive Director, Evva Kraikul, will dive into developing and designing the festival in its 5th year. Evva will touch briefly on the history of the project as well as discuss the challenges, tools, and strategies that are used to build the longest running games conference in the region.
