GameCity’s mission to do bold things with videogames thrives on col­lab­o­ra­tion with other cul­tural part­ners. The GameCity Fes­ti­val has been sup­ported by Not­ting­ham Trent Uni­ver­sity from the start, and works closely with the lo­cal Con­fetti In­sti­tute Of Cre­ative Tech­nolo­gies. It’s also worked with The Bri­tish Li­brary on the Off The Map com­pe­ti­tion, a game-mak­ing chal­lenge based on doc­u­ments from the li­brary col­lec­tion, which this year is fo­cus­ing on Alice In Won­der­land. Along­side Well­come Trust, which brings sci­en­tists to­gether with game de­vel­op­ers to cre­ate sur­pris­ing new cre­ative col­lab­o­ra­tions, GameCity launched The Clover Project, and it’s cur­rently in­volved in work around Not­ting­ham’s sta­tus this year as the first ever City of Foot­ball, as ap­pointed by Sport Eng­land.
