The Riverside Game
In partnership with the South Riverside Community Development Centre, Ruth McElroy and Inga Burrows were invited to respond to a brief which asked them to visualise the findings of an Oxfam research report on poverty. The subject of the report were two distinct area of Cardiff, Splott and Riverside. The solution McElroy and Burrows arrived at was to develop a proto-type board game. Playing the game would stimulate players to compete to overcome obstacles to financial security. A board game design enthusiast, with expertise in poverty issues, was commissioned to develop of the design of the game, in consultation with the communities who were the subject of the report. McElroy and Burrows lead a series of workshops inviting Riverside inhabitants to try and test the board game. The graphics were designed by Frederique Santurne. Report launch.
