Past Events

Friendship Garden grows towards its goals by hosting a number of public and private events, including but not limited to: Gallery Showcases, Game Lounges, Pop-up Arcades, Conference Megabooths, Game Jams, Online Promotion, etc. 

Megabooths

We host megabooths at major conventions to allow indie developers an affordable way to show and promote their work.

Game Showcases

We run pop-up events to showcase and promote the works of game devs whose narratives often go unheard.

Conferences

We run annual conferences focused on healing, play, and inclusion. In 2020 we switched to online in the face of COVID19.

Volunteers

We hope to become an organization that can also create grants for developers, but we will need your help to get there. We welcome people of all walks of life, if you’re interested in volunteering for future events please feel free to join the volunteers mailing list:
