Digital Do-Si-Do is an online media exchange presented in partnership with Games Y’all. It happens bi-monthly in our Discord servers and is a fun, low-stakes opportunity to make something creative, try new software or digital techniques, and meet friends.
What is this / who is it for?
We wanted to create space for artists and game developers to hang out and make stuff together. This exchange takes place across two Discord servers – MoHA (digital media artists and fans) and Fantastic Arcade (game devs and fans). You can join in from either one.
If you’re not sure what Discord is, we made a guide just for you!
