About Marijam Didžgalvytė and Game Workers Unite
Marijam Didžgalvytė is the Chair of Communications Committee at Game Workers Unite and a freelance content creator of videogames & IRL politics.
Marijam will talk about what Game Workers Unite has been up to, and how we can strengthen solidarity amongst game workers.
Game Workers Unite is an international grassroots movement dedicated to unionizing the game industry. We are game workers interested in organizing with everyone who helps make games. And we mean everyone, if you work at a game company, work on a small indie team, do freelance or contract work, and more, you are a game worker and you deserve the protection and support of your fellow workers by standing together in union.
SpilBar is a bimonthly event, where everyone in or close to the computer games industry can meet and mingle. The meetings always start with a talk and end with a drink.
SpilBar is initiated by Kristine Ploug from DADIU, and Thomas Vigild, Headmaster at Vallekilde Game Academy. SpilBar is currently organized by an editorial group consisting of Thomas Vigild, Jesper Krogh Kristiansen, Mads Maturin, and Kristine Ploug.
