We're especially glad to welcome SIGGRAPH's new chapter to ARTS Lab this Saturday -- when we'll connect with Las Cruces live to share and discuss experiences during the recent Global Game Jam.

I think we're all glad that SIGGRAPH we'll be helping bring New Mexico's Digital Media Community together.

From Chapter leader Rachel Nicoll:

February Meeting: IGDA presents Global Game Jam
Saturday, February 13th, 4pm

I hope everyone had a good holiday.
Our first Siggraph event of the year will be a presentation by our local IGDA chapter showcasing the results of their Global Game Jam event.

What is Global Game Jam?
GGJ is a challenging worldwide event whose “biggest goal is to provide opportunities, help developers explore their creativity and allow everyone in our community to work together. “
It will be taking place January 29-31 at both the UNM ARTSLab under leadership of Eric Renz-Whitmore and down south under the direction of Barbara Chamberlin at the NMSU Learning Games Lab.
You can still register to take part in the actual Global Game Jam as well!
