The Vancouver Global Game Jam is dedicated to the Vancouver video-game community.

We seek to bring together students, enthusiasts and industry individuals to work together, side-by-side in an open-minded and judgment-free environment.

We seek to raise awareness of the video-game industry in Vancouver, and the amazing people who work hard every day to create, cover, and play our games.

We seek to raise awareness of the various programs and relevant research at our local universities and colleges.

We seek to create opportunities for networking, resume-building and fostering mentoring relationships among people in our community, or those wishing to become more involved.

The Jam is not, and will never be, a competition.

Instead it is a collaborative, safe, and fun environment where people can come together to learn, teach, and create seriously awesome content!
