Collective Action! invites you to work together with other participants to perform creative, collective actions responding to climate change issues. Start by using your phone to explore the Collective Action! mobile website, create a unique avatar, join a team, navigate to our physical game sites (located at multiple Northern Spark hubs), and prepare to perform! For every action you perform over the course of the night, you’ll earn a point for yourself and your team, which you can track on the website’s game leaderboard.
Each Collective Action! game site will activate the climate change theme for its given Northern Spark location, making each instance of Collective Action! a completely unique experience in performance and play. At the Collective Action! site in the water-themed location Little Mekong, you might work together with the entire audience to perform a rainstorm, or with two or three other players to envision a futuristic water-filtration system!
Collective Action! draws inspiration from the expansive history of non-competitive group games ranging from the New Games Foundation, to fluxus experiments and performances, and earth day activities. Explore: how can your actions as an individual have a larger impact when they are performed in collaboration with others?
