Geekdom: Time Machine Exhibition

A hub for the community to come together and relive their childhood through games, music, cartoons and films. The exhibition will take you back in time to a time of Snakes and Ladders, handheld gaming, hangman and other childhood favourites. It also provides the opportunity for local collectors to exhibit their extensive collections, and provides a rent-free space for local nostalgia collectors to sell items to the public. There’s a Gaming Area, a Screening and Chill-Out Area, the Break Corner, and the annual Ajyal Wall, where attendees can express themselves through art. Participants include The 1-Up Gaming Centre, The Gaming Lounge and Kanpeki Team.

Join us at Katara Building 18.
