Join our monthly talk and play meetup to make new friends, share your love of new releases, geek out over old favourites and be part of a safe and inclusive community.

NB: In order to create a safe space for under-represented people in the world of videogames, this club is exclusively for women, gender-non-conforming, trans and non-binary folks

Please note: Until further notice Women & Non Binary Gamer Club will take place online in a Zoom meeting room. Register below and details for the club will be emailed closer to the event date.

What to expect

We typically run from 6pm till 7pm.

For the first 20 minutes we will live stream gameplay with some commentary. Then its time to chat about the game of the month, however if conversation just isn't for you then you're welcome to listen or chat via the text function.

Dates and games

We run on the second Wednesday of every month. See above for the dates and what game we will be playing.

Feel free to suggest a game by emailing us at gamerclub@acmi.net.au

Community Code of Conduct

Everyone participating in an ACMI Women & Non-Binary Gamer Club event — including, but not limited to the meets, clubs and talks — is required to agree to the following code of conduct. This includes all attendees, speakers, performers, patrons, and volunteers.

ACMI Women & Non-Binary Gamer Club will enforce this code during its events and throughout the year. We expect cooperation from everyone to ensure a safe, diverse, and welcoming environment.

The condensed version

ACMI is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.

Sexist, racist, discriminatory, or harassing language and imagery is not appropriate in the ACMI Women & Non-Binary Gamer Club community, in person or online. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event and premises, as well as all future events without a refund at the discretion of ACMI.

The less condensed version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Exception: discussion or images related to sex, pornography, discriminatory language, or similar is welcome if it meets all of the following criteria:

— It is necessary to the topic of discussion and no alternative exists
— It is presented in a respectful manner
— Attendees are respectfully given ample warning and opportunity to leave beforehand.

This exception specifically does not allow use of gratuitous sexual images as attention-getting devices or unnecessary examples.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are required to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in any of the aforementioned behaviour, ACMI may take any action they deem appropriate, from warning the offender to immediately expelling the offender with no refund.

Reporting and enforcement

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an ACMI Women & Non-Binary Gamer Club team member immediately. If you can’t or don’t wish to speak in person, or prefer to talk privately or electronically, contact us via gamerclub@acmi.net.au.  

All reports will be handled in the strictest confidence.
