Civic Tripod

This report addresses the mobile frontier for civic games across the applied domains of activism, art, and learning. We argue that these three domains can and should speak jointly — an approach we call the civic “tripod.” The structure of the report is part of its contribution, featuring a curated database of projects and interviews from the field.
