Damage Labs Founders Fund Hybrid Capital Initiative

DMG Toronto was formed to provide safe spaces to discuss, play, and make games in a feminist and intersectional cultural context. It is a non-profit video game and interactive arts organization with a mission to provide enthusiastic community support to individuals historically underrepresented in and excluded from games both as an art form and an industry. DMG Toronto, in coordination with the Centre for Art Tapes, plans to create a self-sustaining Founders Fund for Damage Labs to create financial stability for marginalized creators interested in building games studios. Damage Labs’ mission is to eliminate barriers to starting and sustaining game studios owned and led by members of marginalized communities.

Grant amount: $63,100
