San Francisco Museum of Art, Call for San Francisco Bay Area Game Designer Submissions: PlaySFMOMA, with honoraria

San Francisco Museum of Art, Call San Francisco Bay Area for Game Designer Submissions: PlaySFMOMA, with honoraria

Deadline: April 1st, 2015

From their call: Under the auspices of PlaySFMOMA, San Francisco Museum of Art (SFMOMA) seeks game designers-in-residence to collaborate on a range of game- and play-based initiatives that will simultaneously explore games as a creative medium and generate iterative versions of games and activities to engage museum visitors.

One of our goals is to identify and support the work of local independent game designers, so we are only considering applications from residents of the San Francisco Bay Area.

The core of the PlaySFMOMA initiative is the museum’s new game design residency and workshop program. Designers-in-residence, representing leaders of the San Francisco Bay Area gaming community, will work with the museum on a seasonal cohort model. Designers-in-residence will lead workshops for staff and visitors, simultaneously exploring games as a medium and creating iterative versions of games for visitors to play. Each residency cohort will be given a primer on what it means to engage with museum visitors and bridge the gap between arts-interested audiences and the physical and intellectual space of the museum. Playtesting will be integral to the residency, and will occur with a live museum audience. Honoraria will be provided so that emerging game designers can focus on the creative and expressive potential of games without having to concern themselves with the marketability of their products. Designers-in-residence will own the intellectual property of their games.

To apply for the PlaySFMOMA game lab residency, please submit the materials listed at their website:  https://sfmoma.wufoo.com/forms/playsfmoma/

About: The PlaySFMOMA initiative aims to present gaming as an important expressive medium and emerging curatorial discipline in its own right, while serving as a platform for commissioning game-based artworks and engagement tools that will provide museum audiences with new, participatory ways to explore the museum and its collections.
