The National Videogame Foundation Launches

A pioneering new not-for-profit organisation has today been launched in Nottingham, UK. The National Videogame Foundation exists to celebrate, preserve and interpret videogames for everyone. Through its pioneering work in curation, exhibition and public engagement, it rediscovers the past and creates a valuable legacy for the future. آ The Foundation aims to inspire new people to make videogames, start new conversations about them, and find new ways in which they can contribute to culture, society and education. Based at the acclaimed National Videogame Arcade in Nottingham's Creative Quarter, the Foundation will work across four key areas : events, heritage, education and policy-making. As well as delivering the annual GameCity festival and operating the National Videogame Arcade, the new Foundation will also be concentrating on education and public advocacy work.
