The Games Talks 2020 series brings together some of Australia’s best and brightest coders, leaders, developers, artists and animators to take you behind the scenes of their games and their careers, and to answer your questions.

Learn how Brett Leavy, Creative Director and “Virtual Heritage Jedi”, is using VR and videogames to preserve First Nations culture.
