National Museums Scotland is looking for an experienced game developer to work with us on Game Jam project for young people. The project aims to work with young people, through a series of Game Jam sessions, to create new digital games inspired by National Museums Scotland collections.
They are keen to work with young people, especially those who are not currently engaged with the museum, as part of a range of projects over the next two years, bringing a youth perspective to our collections and activities.
The Game Jam project will allow between 6 – 10 young people to engage with museum’s collections in a new and exciting way, developing concepts and imagery for digital games inspired by objects in our new Science and Technology and/or Art & Design galleries, opening summer 2016. – see www.nms.ac.uk/national-museum-of-scotland/discover-the-museum/new-galleries/
They are looking for a game developer who can develop and deliver Game Jam sessions for and with a group of young people, support the young people in developing their skills and ideas and produce a digital game or games based on the work the young people create during these sessions. The finished games will be hosted on the National Museums Scotland’s website or other portals.
Application deadline is Monday 12 October 2015 at 17:00.
