GEEK is a festival of games and play, it has been developed by Marine Studios director Kate Kneale working with her (gamer) son Tom and a team of amazing helpers and supporters. First launched in February 2012 GEEK is held annually in Margate, Kent.
Bigger and better each year GEEK is a huge celebration of games and play. Whether its Mario or Minecraft you will find it at GEEK. There are hundreds of games to play and a full programme of talks and workshops, it’s not all about computer games. Knitting, coding, science, drawing, custard, storytelling, music composition, zombie makeup, poetry and much much more have all been part of GEEK.
People come from far and wide to meet friends and family at GEEK. And when they cant come to us we go to them. We packed up GEEK and took it to Singapore Science Centre, Birmingham Custard Factory and more!
Calling Artists, Indie Devs, Technologists, Inventors and Educators, GEEK is a place to Beta test new games and ideas. We recognise that testing work with a live audience is a vital part of the developmental process and we therefore welcome work in all stages of completion.
