TO  OUR  FUNDRAISING  GOAL
FOR THE NEW GALLERY SPACE
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
We can say with confidence that the Babycastles
Gallery is definitely definitely happening!

 
This is a very exciting milestone for us, and we wanted take a minute to thank all of you who have made this possible so far! We couldn’t have made it to this point without all you wonderful people believing in us and supporting our desire to give Babycastles its own home in NYC. We hope you can continue telling your friends about our new mission, and perhaps even becoming a member of the definitely upcoming Babycastles Gallery yourself if you haven’t already. We are so close to achieving our goal and there’s no turning back now! So please, consider purchasing a membership. The membership confers entry into all upcoming Babycastles events and some other special extras as well!
 
We are currently looking at some promising locations, so the next update should be even better!

The first year of gallery programming has been planned, our opening event will be for As-salāmu `alaykum Babycastles, featuring Islamic independent games. We also have an upcoming show at ACE Hotel in partnership with NY Armory featuring independent video games from mainland China. More news on those soon!!
