HOW TO START A MOVEMENT (The RPG) is a Role Playing Game that was re-enacted multiple times in the restaurant of an contemporary art museum. A group of 15 participants would each pick an envelope with a role and some instructions. Together they would navigate to the museum as a temporary gang, where they would question and disrupt the script and rules present in this space through their given scores. They would witness each other’s actions as well as the impact it had on the dynamics of the space and the audience present. Afterwards they would be welcomed back to reflect and share their experiences.
