Our four 2014-1015 events will happen specifically in cities and during dates where big game events are happening in Europe and that will give us the chance to create synergies between both events and to participate as a group in the external ones. All four of the GameOverHate will be one week long and will share the initial programme (specifically created to connect the different agendas and topics of all the events and where the initial discussions will always start.) We are expecting a group of 30 persons to each event.
Event 1 – “Gender and Sexuality in Videogames”
Discussing gender and sexuality based hate in videogames and the representation of female and LGBTQ characters in gaming culture.
When: 28th September – 4th October 2015
Where: Vienna, Austria

Event 2 – “Esports and Competition”
Discussing how competition and fair play can come together in gaming spaces. How can tournaments and conventions be places inclusive and fun for all?
When: November 2015, before Dreamhack Winter
Where: Jönköping, Sweden
