Gamma Space, once a thriving events hub and coworking space for indie devs in Toronto's downtown West Queen West neighborhood, has transformed over the last year to a not-for-profit, distributed member co-op. We are a group of game developers, artists, and creative technologists dedicated to exploring more community-led, collectively prosperous ways to care for, support and raise each other up.

Since 2012, we’ve been making space for those who have been marginalized from tech spaces – now we’re working together to redefine equitable creative practices and shared value for our efforts.

We’ll be sharing more information about how you can get involved soon.

Baby Ghosts, a partnership between Weird Ghosts and Gamma Space, is a 4-month program aimed at supporting emerging underrepresented founders and studios through the process of developing a demo, identifying and solving studio development pain points, and addressing the challenges of the “three Ps”: Product, Production, and Pitching.

  • Storytelling training: Teams are supported in developing writing and presenting competencies for reporting (internal) and marketing (external).
  • Professional development: Founders and teams are coached through studio development milestones.
  • Financial support: Founders and/or studios receive an unrestricted grant of $20,000 from Weird Ghosts.
  • Community support: Teams can tap into an engaged group of founders, developers and artists for peer mentorship and skill development.

Coordinated by Gamma Space Hyades node: datejie cheko green, Kaitlyn Dougon and Henry Faber

And Weird Ghosts: Eileen Mary Holowka and Jennie Robinson Faber

With support from Ontario Creates.
