culturecapital [ongoing]

culturecapital is an ongoing project. It is a playable trading card game that creates figures of arts festivals, organizations, companies, and collectives. The active agents of Vancouver's culture sectors are the tools of the game. The game will showcase game mechanics resulting in and arising from resource management, risk assessment, as well as external factors during the process of bartering cards. Using public funding figures, operating budgets, and knowledge of cultural festivities, the possibility of creating a system to problematize these numbers and their expanded relationships is at the core of culturecapital.

Further phases include plans to make a multi-city version, host a national tournament, and a produce a live-streamed micro performance within a dynamic media apparatus.

This project is currently being developed in collaboration with Patrick Blenkarn and is in the first of three working phases.
