Glass Plate Game and First Thursday Open House
Collective Agency Downtown

The Glass Plate Game, inspired by Hermann Hesse's Glass Bead Game, is essentially a conversation in the trappings of a board game. Hesse's game us alluded to as a The idea is to spark creative and interesting dialog as the players explore connections between ideas against a dynamic mosaic map. There are no winners or losers. There is no order of play. Conversation continues throughout, and anyone can make a move at any time. The end result is an artifact of the conversation. The "game board" makes it easy to follow the twists and turns of the conversation.

Co-creator Dunbar Aitkens will be visiting to help lead the session. We will begin with an introduction to the game followed by a period of idea card making to especially bring concepts from players' own projects and interests into the card deck, then launch right into playing. Stay for the 3rd hour, and we'll build Glass Plate Game sets for everyone who'd like one to take with them. The sets contain "idea cards" for composing the mosaic and wooden cubes and colored transparencies for tracking the thread of thought.

Come for fun, friends, and stimulating conversation.

Also, "Collective Agency" will be open continuously to the public, from 9am-9pm on September 1st. Regular hours are 9am-5pm, Mon-Fri.
