In DMG Workshop

Interested in creating a more inclusive and safe tabletop community? Want to learn about tools for trust you can bring to to your group? This is the talk series for you!

#DMGRPG presents talks from local community organizers, experienced GMs and game designers Kate Bullock and Daniel Kwan!

Kate Bullock

Creating safer spaces extends from conventions to communities to our game table. Kate will talk about different safety tools, what safety means, what it feels like in game, and how to gain the trust of your players to make your games and your GMing more than it has been before. She will also invite you think about what your game says about you, the community you function in, and how you can make sure your games reflect your core values and the values of your community.

Kate is a game designer, community organizer and so much more! Learn more about her work at

Daniel is the co-host of the Asians Represent podcast and one of the co-founders of Level Up Gaming, an organization that provides adults with autism and other disabilities opportunities to develop their social skills through group gaming experiences.
