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 art and games, share and inspire each other through creative challenges, and to create safe spaces to explore creativity and art with like-minded folks.

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 unceded, ancestral, and traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.
