From 8th to 10th August 2022, we have organized a KICK-OFF MEETING for Digi Age project in Turkiye.
The burgeoning world of gaming technology was met with a trailblazing initiative recently as the innovative DIGI-AGE Game Development & Coding Academy kickstarted its ambitious project aimed at nurturing the digital gaming landscape in Turkey and beyond. This significant milestone was marked by a collaborative meet that saw project partners from Norway, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Lithuania, and Turkey coming together to discuss plans and chart the course for future activities.
The opening event took place in Bilisim Vadisi, Turkey, an apt setting given its reputation as a hotbed of technological innovation and creativity. Here, the eclectic mix of international partners outlined their vision, each contributing their unique expertise to the blueprint of the project.
Envisioned as an empowering platform, DIGI-AGE aims to equip youth and professionals with game development skills, riding the wave of the booming interest in digital content, especially gaming. Its initiatives include Mobile Game and Scenario Development Camps, comprehensive educational toolkits, and the establishment of a sustainable game studio in collaboration with BAU.
