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 art and games, share and inspire each other through creative challenges, and to create safer spaces to explore creativity and art with like-minded folks.
Our collective strives to be creative group for people of all races, abilities, identities, and levels of education. We wish to respectfully acknowledge that we host events, and play as uninvited guest on the stolen (unceded), ancestral, and traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.
