REINVENTING MONOPOLY
"32 Brains", Arcadia Gallery, Coventry, (2019)
Provocation:  What would a game of Monopoly look like if it was a true representation of inequality gap faced by many when trying to access housing?
Participants used the Monopoly board as a starting point.  They were particularly interested in the Chance and Community Chest cards and a large part of the session concentrated on creating Positive cards and Negative cards.  Some participants then began to investigate how such a game could be played when there are so many variants in the current social structure.
Participants were keen to continue with exploring the idea of a game that provided a truthful account of how the odds are always in favour of the few and not the many.
Plans are in progress to facilitate a continuation of this workshop.
