GEMH Game Gallery

Discover the bright side of games and tech

Our mission at GEMH Lab is to create and raise awareness about games that facilitate wellbeing. We have created the Game Gallery to enable anyone and everyone to experience some highlights of the current games-for-wellbeing landscape.

What is the GEMH Game Gallery?


GEMH (pronounced a little like ‘djem’!) Game Gallery was a one-day festival event about games and wellbeing. Visitors were able to come and experience the bright side of games for themselves! GEMH Game Gallery offered a range of playful demos that are fun for visitors of all ages. We presented projects that come out of the Games for Emotional and Mental Health (GEMH) Lab, but also other initiatives developed throughout the Netherlands and even beyond. All of the projects we presented have a positive link to our wellbeing in one way or another!

GEMH Game Gallery took place on 2 July 2022 in Tivoli Vredenburg in Utrecht. See below for a look back on our fun event! If we get the chance to organise a second edition, we hope to see you there!
