ARCADIA

A grassroots celebration exploring independent, alternative, and experimental play in games, space and culture.

ARCADIA DAY:

Diverse talks, engaging panels and friendly, accessible workshops from leading local and international creators. Covering a spectrum  from practical design and making,  to games in culture, experimental business models to games heritage and the future. 

ARCADIA NIGHT:

Celebrate and play at the Arcadia Warehouse Party with incredible hand picked games and deep electronic/ dubtek live sets brought to you by Main Ingredient (Edinburgh) and Amorphic (London). All taking place in the dramatic space of the West Ward Works factory in the heart of industrial Dundee. 

 

BIOME COLLECTIVE

Biome Collective is a diverse, inclusive melting pot of technology, art and culture for people who want to create, collaborate and explore games, digital art and technology. The Dundee-based collective and co-working space is the first of its kind in Scotland. It provides access to space and support for professionals, organisations and graduates working in the interactive digital sphere. Biome Collective is made up of an ever-expanding range of disciplines from design and art to business and technology. It is creating a culture of collaboration beyond the traditional game sector by fostering local and international relationships and creating original and unique work.
