We are very excited to announce that  “Investment Zone“ – our new project in Gelsenkirchen, Germany – was confirmed to have a partner from Bangalore, India. The local art organization Jaaga jumped on board to facilitate the project locally parallel to the one in Gelsenkirchen. As the game starts in April 2014, both processes can be followed from the project web site.

Investment Zone is a game and an experiment. We are looking for 10 people in Gelsenkirchen and Bangalore to sign up to a 6 month game in which an empty piece of land in the city is put in use according to the participants ideas. Small grants are given in bi-monthly meetings, where decisions about the next investment moves are made. The participants can team up and combine their grants or aim to realize just their own ideas.
