Casework Productions has developed a community story collecting game for premier at the Figment Interactive Arts Festival in New York City in June. 

Tapestry is a participatory game for families and groups of people that gets them to share stories and make real connections through learning about one another, creating art as a community, and playing together. 

We're raising money so that we can take Tapestry to Figment where last year they had 25,000 visitors (and they're expecting even more this year). We're excited about sharing our game with SO MANY PEOPLE, but also need some help funding the purchase of supplies and getting the crew to the festival. We'd love to have good production values on this game, and with your help: we'll be able to. 

To play Tapestry, you (in a team or otherwise, depending on how competitive you want to be) collect stories from the people around you. You thank them for their stories. And then create something out of their stories-- a comic strip, a poem,  a picture, a map....all of which is then collected as part of the community Tapestry for other people (and the players!) to enjoy.

Thank you so much for your help! Without you this wouldn't be possible. You are amazing. Please, enjoy this picture of a grateful (yet proud) dog.
