LOVE BOMB EXHIBITION
We are trying to show what Anita and feminism meant to the nordic gaming community with a ”Love bomb”, where we will collect accounts from feminists in gaming all over Sweden. This will all be collected into an exhibition and shown at the event. Be a part of it as well!:

We are all very proud to host this event with Anita.
