Join SOMArts and Come Out & Play SF to kick off three weeks of city-sized games for all ages! You'll run through the streets, become a kid again on the playground, explore new ways of behaving in public, and ask yourself why life can't always be this amazing. The Come Out & Play SF Festival, a forum for new types of public games and play, expands in 2012 to include a month-long games exhibition in SOMArts Cultural Center’s Main Gallery, November 17–December 8th, 2012.
In addition to an opening night party with artist facilitated games, Saturday, November 17, 6pm–9pm, Come Out & Play SF also includes the annual festival weekend of games for all ages, Saturday and Sunday, December 1 & 2, 12pm–5pm. Festival weekend games are hosted in the gallery at SOMArts and in public spaces and recreation areas in the surrounding South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood.
From alternative sports, board games and puzzles to iPad apps, laser mazes and proximity sensors, Come Out & Play SF Festival and Exhibition harnesses the ingenuity of game designers to engage San Francisco’s communities in creative play and to transcend preconceptions around human interaction and public space.
Register in advance to skip the lines at the opening night party and during festival weekend! http://www.somarts.org/playsf
