The slides from my 2014 IndieCade East talk, "We Built a Community, So Can You." A welcoming, engaged community of game-makers can be a tremendous source of support to its members, but it doesn't happen on its own. I've seen Dames Making Games Toronto grow from a small meetup to a vibrant and busy nonprofit, and people sometimes ask how to start something similar in their own cities. I'll share how we got started, our guiding principles for inclusivity, the challenges we faced, our program structures, and our fundraising methods. If you want to build a new game community, or want some ideas for your existing group, this talk is for you.
