Back to projects



We launched GEEK in 2012. As a studio we also generate our own projects. These projects are designed to build cultural participation and create opportunities for skill sharing.  Our events projects are delivered by our Community Interest Company Marine Studios CIC. More about our work as Marine Studios can be found here:


GEEK is a festival of play and games. A core playable display of hundreds of video games anchors the festival. Around this display there are four days of talks, pinball arcades, traditional games, role playing , workshops and tournaments.


The Winter Gardens, Margate serves as a hub for the festival while other venues in town host exhibitions, interactive art and theatre performances.


Guest curators are invited to build the scope and diversity of GEEK. In 2013 we invited London based games studio Hide&Seek to join us as guest curators. They bought together a glittering array of contemporary social games by international artists – they also created new site specific games for Margate.
