Calling Games Collectors - Victoria
I am currently working for the Australian Centre for the Moving Image as a Regional Programs Coordinator for the upcoming exhibition
Game Masters: Discover the Worlds Greatest Video Games and their Creators 2012
We have a series of linked satelite events happening in the outer metro and regional areas of Victoria, at this stage with a focus on Ballarat and Geelong.
As part of this program we are hosting a Special Event the Game Collector's Roadshow. Basically the event will be a:
Multi-location Collectors Event within Metropolitan Melbourne and Regional Victoria.
A one-day specialised event for Retro-game collectors who have a passion for playing and collecting retro video games, hardware and associated paraphernalia.
I am posting here as I am hoping to guage for my initial research any potential regional 'hotspots' for collectors, or even find collectors who would be potentially interested in participating in a panel discussion, exhibiting their collection and connecting with like minded folk across Victoria.
If you yourself are a collector who fits this bill, or know of any particular communities who you think might be interested then I would love to hear from you!
