About This Event

culturecapital is a live art performance in the form of a collectible card game.

Constructed from a mix of interviews with artists about their experiences making performance in Canada and fives years worth of municipal, provincial, and federal public funding data on performing arts companies, artists Milton Lim and Patrick Blenkarn invite audiences to become stewards of the arts: to summon Companies, roll for Grants, play Projects, and useStrategies to win over Communities.

As much a living archive as it is a card game, culturecapital creates a context in which players can understand and question how value is determined, shifted, and produced within today’s Canadian performing arts economies.

On June 6 from 2pm - 9pm, Lim and Blenkarn will be hosting a demonstration and open studio of the BC edition of the game. Drop in to play a hand.
