Our acclaimed exhibition of talent, Ensemble, seeks to shed light on the fantastic work being done by creatives from black, Asian underrepresented ethnicities and showcase a variety of roles in our industry.

Led by games London and supported by PlayStation and Mayor of London, Ensemble spotlights and showcases inspiring stories in the workforce to promote diversity, advocate for new boices and change perceptions.
