Studio Design with Jason Della Rocca


Join us on July 24th at the Victorian Pride Centre for an evening of upskilling and networking with industry expert Jason Della Rocca.

The evening will include a lecture from Jason Della Rocca as well as an industry networking component that will be fully catered.

This event will be the first of two free major events designed as part of the 2023 SMART Program, so it will be a great opportunity to not only learn and network but also to meet this year’s immensely talented SMART Program cohort.

This event was made possible by the generous support of the City of Port Phillip and their innovative Games Action Plan. Through the Games Action Plan, the City of Port Phillip fosters local games development, provides opportunities for equitable access to creative communities, and supports increased representation of marginalised groups and emerging talent in Melbourne’s games industry.
