Code Breakers: Women in Games is an exciting, hands-on exhibition showcasing the remarkable achievements of female game designers.
Visitors of all ages and skill-levels can try their hand on fourteen gaming stations and immerse themselves in the world of gaming. You can crush bullies in Ninja Pizza Girl, run with animals in Armello or race suped-up cars in Need for Speed: No Limits.
Learn about the trailblazing women who have helped shape the gaming industry, including Maru Nihoniho, Founder and Managing Director of Metia Interactive and recipient of a New Zealand Order of Merit for her service to the gaming industry.
Lucinda Jimson, our CEO, says, “this exhibition serves as a powerful testament to the incredible talent and creativity of women in the gaming industry. By showcasing their achievements, we hope to inspire young people to pursue their dreams fearlessly, regardless of gender.”
On now until November 12, 2023, and FREE for Nelson Tasman residents and ratepayers.
Code Breakers: Women in Games was developed by ACMI in Melbourne and is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
