Ambassadors

As an ambassador, your mission is to empower people to challenge themselves and dare to take the next step in the games industry. We do this by providing a creative space to socially connect, exchange knowledge and encourage game development. This is voluntary work with no pay and you will not be employed at The Great Journey. 

We celebrate and showcase the work and talent of our community throughout the games industry, providing unique opportunities for you as our ambassador to contribute to our talks, our game jams, and other activities.
