Mission

Albuquerque Game Developers Guild (AGDG) promotes a community of collaboration in order to create and curate the future of game development in Albuquerque. Ours is a community of inclusivity and welcomes everyone interested in creating art, music, stories, and any other interactive game or experience design. To increase accessibility, community, and peer to peer support we pledge:

~ To provide a safe, inclusive, and inviting space for everyone who wishes to attend meetings, events, or workshops hosted by AGDG. These events are for anyone who seeks a place to create, teach, or collaborate within our community.

~ To provide access to resources that can be critical to many developers. This includes but is not limited to scholarship, mentorship, hardware, software, development kits, and presentation and collaboration equipment. Developers with few resources should have equal opportunity and the support necessary to bring their ideas to life.

~ To nurture the work of the local community through outreach, workshops, conference attendance, public events, and project promotion. AGDG will strive to create platforms to amplify the work and voices of the artists and developers in our community in a diverse and inclusive way.
