We hope you’ve had a fantastic start to the year because the team at JumpCut PLAY definitely have. It is with immense pleasure that we can announce an exciting new collaboration that has been on the table for a while now. Since JumpCut’s inception, our ethos has always focused on highlighting unique voices within our industry. Behind those voices are supremely talented minds that deserve support and care. With that in mind, it is time that we announce our partnership with GLITCH.
GLITCH is an online magazine centred around the positive link between mental health and gaming. By exploring the different avenues of care, inspiration and healing that gaming can provide, GLITCH founder and PLAY writer Siobhan Eardley has created a fantastic new space for the gaming community to share their stories. We firmly believe in the conversation of safe spaces for self-development, growth and comfort. PLAY and GLITCH will be working together to encourage this attitude within the community.
In the spirit of continued support, Siobhan’s project is also in aid of charity organisations with similar missions. Last year as part of our JumpCut Charity Initiative, we set ourselves a goal to raise £1000 in total for our team’s chosen charities. With our partners The Valkyries joining the cause, you can imagine our surprise when we raised over £3000 for the following charities such as Mind, Medicinema, Great Ormond Street Hospital and RNLI.
Whilst we aren’t quite ready to make an official announcement just yet, you can be sure that the Charity Initiative will be returning this year to raise even more money for great causes.
If you would like to contribute to Issue #2 of GLITCH (release date TBC) please drop us an email (which you can find on our Contact page) or fire Siobhan or the PLAY Twitter account a DM to chat more about it.
