Festival of Play Impact Report

Read the Report

On 13 July 2022, we welcomed 140 school pupils and 20 teachers to the first ever Festival of Play, a fun-filled conference packed with workshops, talks, games and activities aimed at developing STEAM skills and offering careers advice. Produced in association with Electronic Arts, the event was held at tech and innovation hub HOST Salford and brought together six schools and eight university student volunteers with 10 games companies and over 35 industry professionals to learn and network.

We conducted an evaluation survey for the learners and educators who attended the Festival of Play, as well as the student volunteers who helped out at the event, which has given us valuable insight into the impact of the Festival. Our Festival of Play 2022 Impact Report gives an overview of the activities of the day and summarises key findings from these surveys. To read the report, please click the link below.
