this event is pay-what-you-can
It might sound crazy, but two artists have built a card game about the performing arts industry in Alberta. And now it’s time to compete.
Summon real Alberta Companies, roll for Grants, play Projects, and use Strategies to attract more communities to your side. Welcome to culturecapital.
This event is the culmination of the week’s tournament. The best players meet in a digital media spectacle arena, where the 2020 Chinook Series Champion will be crowned and take home $500 of public funding.
Come for satire, come for sport, come to support your hometown arts hero, or just come for the flashing lights and big sound in the most epic card game performance you will have ever seen.
culturecapital is designed from a mix of interviews with local artists about their experiences making performance and four years worth of public funding data on performing arts companies in Alberta. Edmonton’s 2020 Chinook Series performance marks the inaugural public tournament for culturecapital. Concurrent versions of the game are being developed for tournaments at festivals across Canada, including Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, and Calgary.
Everything you need to know in order to play in the round robin and make your way to the top can be found online at culturecapital.card/chinook2020. It’s easy to learn, fun to play, and no prior arts experience or card game experience is necessary.
