Within PlayUK platform, in January 2020, British Council in cooperation with Nordeus Hub and SGA (Serbian Games Association) organized festival PlayUK 2020, bringing together regional developers, digital artists and other creatives from gaming industry.

During the festival, participants were given the opportunity to attend numerous workshops and lectures and to meet colleagues from the region and United Kingdom. Chance to attend workshops was given to 30 participants, of which 10 were from Bosnia and Herzegovina, with opportunity to develop their skills in UI/UX narrative design, arts, programming and other related fields. Workshops were visited by lecturers who present pioneers in their fields of study, such as Jo Twist, Callum Underwood, Jon Mckellan and others.

“We are very happy and excited to be the part of PlayUK workshops”
