A collectible trading card game about the Canadian performing arts economy.

Come check out a sneak peek workshop demonstration of the game that arts funding juries are calling “divisive and niche”, and that almost everyone else is calling “absolutely necessary to play”. At this year’s Exchange, Milton Lim and Patrick Blenkarn begin building the Toronto edition of culturecapital, a participatory live art trading card game where players assume roles as stewards of the local arts community, summon companies, roll for grants, produce projects, and play strategies.

culturecapital is part of Open Hours in SummerWorks Exchange Day 2 and Exchange Day 3. This is a free event and open to the public.

Part of the SummerWorks Exchange programming – a series of events to facilitate artist and community growth, to strengthen the ecology of live performance in Canada, and expand our dialogue and collaboration with the international arts community.

Milton Lim + Patrick Blenkarn Co-created by Milton Lim and Patrick Blenkarn

culturecapital has been developed with the support of the Boca del Lupo Space Residency Program, Impulse Theatre, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
