Join us this week on Downloadable Content with Kate and Bacon Man on The 405 Media to hear from our first guest: Matthew Rappard of The Fine Young Capitalists (TFYC). For those unfamiliar with The Fine Young Capitalists, their mission is to create media using underrepresented labor, for unexplored demographics to fund non-profit organizations. TFYC are a loose group of artists and entrepreneurs that work with minorities to get their work seen.
Matt will be discussing women in the technology industry, how they are represented by the media and how this has lead to the current confluence of opinions in #Gamergate. We will also discuss TFYC’s #NotYourShield Project, an art sale to increase diversity. All profits from the sales of items in TFYC store will be donated to The Fine Young Councilors to create scholarship awards for students graduating in game design to promote diversity.
To support the art sale, visit TFYC site here: http://the-fine-young-capitalists.myshopify.com/
