About

Street Art Bingo: An Educational Street Art Expedition

Experience the street art of Berlin in a new and engaging way. Street Art Bingo is an on-location bingo game, where participants compete with others to find street art while reflecting upon the various messages and art forms the street art contains. Our app will enable us to reach a broad audience and give students (as well as other explorers and aficionados) the opportunity to discover street art on a fun and informative urban expedition.  

Dönerkind is a small company, creating and facilitating alternative educational experiences in Berlin since June 2013. It was founded by us, Rasmus and Louise Therkildsen. We both have a background of teaching in schools and other educational institutions, and we have made it our mission to involve students and other participants in new ways. This means, among other things, that they search and find information themselves while we help and facilitate the experience. It is about using the city and finding those special stories the city contains, while at the same time having fun.

Working with the Community

The walls of Kreuzberg’s Wrangelkiez present an abundance of street art, and the people living there create a great atmosphere making playing Street Art Bingo even more fun. We want to involve ourselves with this community so they can benefit from the game as well, which is why we've decided to donate a minimum of five percent of our expected profits to local street art activities. We hope this will be a helping hand in developing the arts even further. Secondly, we ask you, our backers: Which local initiatives, stores, cafés or places should be featured on the map in the game? A maximum of ten places can be shown (we don't want to distract our players) and we hope our players will use those places and in that way support the neighborhood.

How Does it Work?

The game is simple: You (single player or group) receive a bingo card with images of distinctive street art from the neighborhood. Your task is to set out and find it. A compass points the direction to the first piece, and when you find it, you photograph it with your phone and then - it's on to find the next piece with help from the compass.

The goal is to get a Full House (aka Bingo Glory), but nothing comes easy in Berlin and street art is no exception! During the game, small pop up tasks give you background stories for the specific piece or about street art in general. By solving these tasks, you earn better clues, which will lighten the search for the next piece. You can also choose to stall your competitors by stealing one of their pieces, forcing them to backtrack to the location of the removed piece.

Two Versions

We are building two versions of Street Art Bingo. An educational version, primarily for teachers and students focusing on enhanced collaborative learning with mandatory assignments, and an adventure version, mainly for locals and tourists - with single and multiplayer options for adventurers who want an entertaining time exploring the world of street art.

BINGO GLORY!

In the educational version students will collaborate in groups to find street art and answer mandatory as well as optional assignments about the street art they find. Mandatory assignments are created to inform the students and urge them to reflect upon the different art forms and stories the specific piece tells. Optional assignments are more extensive and therefore also offer the students better clues or the opportunity to steal images from their closest competitor.

Street Art Bingo challenges students to take control of their own learning experience while making the subject more relevant and more fun as a location-based gaming experience. When combining location-based learning and gaming, we believe that it is possible to enhance students’ motivation to learn about the subject. In this case street art with insights into the specific characteristics of the genre. Overall it is a social learning experience through collaboration and competition with others both physically and virtually.

In addition, learning material will be available so that students and teachers can study different aspects of street art before and after the game; such as aesthetics, genres and types of messages.

The adventure version is more simple. Take out the mandatory assignments and keep the competitive urban gaming experience with optional assignments. This version is for locals and tourists who wants to explore, have fun and maybe learn more about the street art they find. It will be possible to play this game as a single player or multiplayer as a group.

The Döner stamp

a one-of-a-kind döner stamp
a one-of-a-kind döner stamp

Who uses a stamp now-a-days, you might ask? Well, being a company in Germany more or less forces you to have one and the good thing about that is that we can decide what it should look like! Luckily, we have a great old fashioned print shop next door that also produces stamps, and together we've created this unique döner stamp on the same frame used by the German Postal Service. And guess what? We've found a whole range of places worthy of an ink-fresh döner stamp. This stamp can be yours only through backing the campaign, don't hesitate to get yours.

Budget

Our budget is tight, we can’t hide that. When we talked to different developers, we got prices as high as 70.000 € and we want to do it for 9.440 €! The only reason that can happen is because we’ve been working on our own time, as have our developers. It’s been fun and we would do it again, but we also like to pay our developers and designers fairly for their great amount of work. For the awards where we are present in person, everything goes into the project. Included in our budget are hosting for the first two years and the first two general updates of the app to meet new OS requirements.

Pricing 

We have different price structures for the developed app. The adventure version for locals and visitors will be free and remain free. The educational version will cost 6 € pr. student, which is about half of the amount that students are paying now for the offline game with teacher present.

The Street Art Bingo Team

Since 2013, more than 50 school classes have been playing offline Street Art Bingo with us, and we are convinced that the Street Art Bingo app will be a fun and engaging educational alternative to more traditional guided tours. With our awesome team (programmers Holger Heissmeyer and Sebastian Quack, designer Michael Rudolph, interns Kasper Rothaus and Jens Dahl Thomsen - graduate students in IT and Learning, as well as a crew of consultants within game development) we have the best possibility to make a game that is everything we believe it will be.

Timeline

We plan to have Street Art Bingo ready for you and the world in May 2016. See the full timeline here:

Future Mission

In the future, our dream is to extend the Street Art Bingo to other areas of Berlin, other cities in Germany and then around the world. As well as to other themes. We imagine future bingo versions dealing with architecture, urban installations and design. Building the Street Art Bingo app is our small, all time consuming and important first step towards this dream.

Risks and challenges

Two important challenges for the project are 1) a tight budget and 2) unforeseen difficulties in the app development, which might impact the development process.

Our budget is tight, but developed in close communication with our developers. They have played an important part in the game development from the beginning, which means that they know every feature and aspect of the game. Technically difficult feature of the app, e.g. image recognition, have been tested so that we know they are possible to integrate without extra cost.

Adequate testing is crucial to troubleshoot unforeseen difficulties. Of course we can't test every feature before the actual programming, but most technical features have been tested or are features in which our developers have previous experience. We have also tested different assignments and processes with different types of audiences: Kids, students, teachers and varying groups of adults. Results from these tests showed that the first game design was too simple and not progressive enough, and as a consequence we have made it more interactive and added different ways to compete.

A third challenge is how street art changes all the time. This is, however, also a central feature about the genre. As street art is an evolutionary form of expression so too must our app be a constantly evolving viewer experience. This means we have to be constantly on our toes changing pieces when they’re no longer there and updating when new pieces come to life. We do this already - and gladly - as this is a natural part of our everyday lives and a fundamental part of what really excites us about the app!

So. Now we’re ready to begin building - thank YOU for your support and for making it all the way to the bottom of this text!
