What is the Papercut Arcade?

The Papercut Arcade Collective was formed with the intention to run interactive events, workshops and exhibitions. We aim to produce interactive stories and games, share and inspire each other through creative challenges, and to create safe spaces to explore creativity and art with like-minded folks. Formally, the Creative Interactions Club (hosting Club IF interactive fiction events), we are still shaking out the details of our identity as a collective and so stay in touch as we collaborate and coalesce into the creative collective we aim to become.

Our collective strives to be an inclusive and safe group for people of all races, identities, and levels of education. We wish to respectfully acknowledge that we host events, and play on the *unceeded*, ancestral, and traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.
