Brooklyn-based videogame arts and culture company Kill Screen, which is interested in the intersection between games, play, and other seats of culture from art to music to design, has organized its first conference. Twofivesix is billed as “a one-day celebration of play as culture, placing game designers into conversation with other digital creatives.” Kill Screen notes:

Games are a lens to view life in a new and fantastic way. We believe games have a lot to teach culture and culture has a lot to teach games. We’ve worked with game designers in the past, but we thought, what better way to nurture cross-pollination than to bring some of the brightest gaming minds and sharpest folks from outside games into the same room?

Crowdfunding A Conference On Kickstarter

The conference, which is being hosted at the Invisible Dog Art Center in New York on May 11th, is crowdsourcing the funds on Kickstarter rather than selling tickets the traditional way.

Backers who pledge $250 will receive a ticket giving them full access to the conference. Hosting the conference on Kickstarter also helps Kill Screen gage interest and connect the production costs of an event with its audience through the open platform.
