Women in Games exhibition comes to Lilydale this weekend


From this Saturday 5 March until Sunday 15 May, Code Breakers: Women in Games, a free touring exhibition from ACMI, will be showcased at the Yarra Ranges Regional Museum in Lilydale.

The exhibition, which originally ran at ACMI in 2017, offers an immersive interactive experience which celebrates the achievements of women working in the games industry. Featured game makers include Siobhan Reddy, Co-Founder and Studio Director of Media Molecule, Katharine Neil, director of Escape From Woomera, and Maru Nihoniho, Founder and Managing Director of Media Interactive and recipient of a New Zealand Order of Merit for her service to the game industry.

To help launch the exhibition, an online panel ‘On Gaming and Social Change’ is being held by the museum on International Women’s Day (Tuesday 8 March) from 12pm-1pm AEDT, featuring Lisy Kane, a producer at League of Geeks and co-producer of Girl Geek Academy, Caitlin Cronin, Paper House Producer, and Professor Larissa Hjorth, Design & Creative Practice Platform director at RMIT University.
