culturecapital round robin tournament
February 9 – 12 (see schedule below!)
in the ATB Financial Arts Barns Boardroom
created by Milton Lim & Patrick Blenkarn

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.

In this show, a $21 deck is your ticket to play. So buy your own deck, learn to play, and compete with other audience members in the round robin tournament to reach the finals—where YOU CAN WIN THE CASH PRIZE of $500 of public funding. 

The first four days will be the round robin tournament: bring your deck, sit at a table, and battle your opponent to get a higher score. The tournament events culminate in finalists from the leaderboard ascending to the digital media spectacle arena, where the 2020 Chinook Series Champion will be crowned. It could be YOU.

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 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.

We hope to see you there!
