“It’s a real pleasure to work with the talented people of Playground Games and Microsoft Store in delivering these sessions.

“Many of the students at ELAM have started their education in games development and other areas based on the inspiration from industry leaders just like the game creators at Playground, so we know how valuable sessions like this are,” said Director of Games at East London Arts and Music, Curtis Le Blanc.

The workshop will be hosted online and interested participants will need to register online to secure a spot in one of four sessions.
