Two players compete online for sweet art money in culturecapital, the arts economy trading card game

culturecapital is a live art project that takes the form of a collectible card game and living archive. The project is constructed from two sets of data: (1) hundreds of interviews with artists about their experiences making performance in Canada and (2) five years worth of municipal, provincial, and federal public funding data on performing arts companies. Using this information, the game strives to create a context in which players can question, understand, and celebrate how value is determined, shifted, and produced within theatre, dance, and live arts in Canada. No prior knowledge of art or games is required.

Alchemy of the Reset

Our society is igniting the potential to leap forward. How can you engage in the reset?

Alert! Seismic shifts underway. Culture, politics, and policy are transforming in real time. In the wake of ongoing racist police violence and the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and countless others, and while we continue to face the COVID-19 crisis, our society is igniting the potential to leap forward. How can you engage in the reset? How can you support a radical reimagination of what is possible? How can you push against old structures and work to rebuild?
