Game Curious explores the art of video games, for people who don't necessarily identify as "gamers". Join the game literacy movement in a no-pressure learning environment of discussion, discovery and play. The first six weeks we PLAY, the next six weeks we MAKE.

PLAY is a six-week drop-in program where we curate a selection of games aimed at showcasing the wide variety of themes, stories, and artistic expression that exist within the medium, with a special focus on locally made games. Anyone can join and explore. No registration required.

MAKE is a 6-week game-making workshop where participants learn to create their own video game project, no prior programming skills required!

Founded in 2009, the Hand Eye Society is one of the first video game art organizations of its kind in the world. It is a Toronto not-for-profit dedicated to supporting and showcasing video games made primarily as a form of creative expression. The Hand Eye Society aims to provide exhibition opportunities, education, creative support, mentorship, knowledge sharing and inspiration to artists, enthusiasts, and the game-curious in Toronto.
