Eight BAME-background talents from the games industry have been selected for the London Games Festival’s yearly 2020 Ensemble showcase. Check out the video below.


Ensemble, supported by the British Council, highlights the significant contribution BAME creatives have made to the UK’s games culture at every level, focusing on eight games creatives and delving into their work.

The eight were selected by curator Sharna Jackson plus a dedicated steering group of BAME representatives from across the UK video games and interactive sector.

Ensemble is just one aspect of the London Games Festival, which features a mix of activity for consumers and industry professionals. The programme can be found at www.games.london.

London Games Festival is backed by the Mayor of London with funding of £1.2m over three years and seeks to make London the games capital of the world. It is delivered by Games London, an initiative from Film London, the capital’s screen industries agency, and video games trade body Ukie.

The eight were selected by curator Sharna Jackson, artistic director of Site Gallery in Sheffield and author of multi-award-nominated children’s book High Rise Mystery.
