Tag Town @ Art & About

Art & About is Sydney's festival of art on the streets. It takes experimentation out of the studio and artworks out of the gallery. Happening 20 September - 20 October and overlapping school holidays, it encourages everyone to explore, play and express their creativity at exhibitions, live shows and activities in surprising places. So we're really chuffed to be part of it!

Tag Town, our platform for stories and games, is a photographic scavenger hunt where picture-clues lead players to discover real locations via iOS mobile app. Players use image clues on their iPhones to hunt for locations and when they find them, they snap and upload their own matching photos to show they've found the spot. Tag Town taps into the creativity of photography and the fun of exploring alone or with friends, while building an expanding collection of shared photos of our city's fascinating features and locations.

To start with we are running two Art & About quests designed to be accessible to everyone. Details, hints and tips on each can be found at their Facebook event pages:

Tag Town is an app that aims to be a platform for people's stories as well as an exploring game, so Tag Town will continue to evolve throughout the festival as players experiment, give feedback and build the photo collection for stories to grow around. The first games will be run on Saturday 28 September.
