In 2008 I created an artists board game Proposal. The first official playing of the game was in front of an invited audience and was billed as a performance piece at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. Proposal visually references influences and inspiration behind my artwork and playing the game physically demonstrate the types of actions I undertake when generating new ideas for artwork. Through playing the game participants enter into discussions with fellow players and generate ideas for potential future artworks. These outcomes led me to investigate the potential of using board games as a teaching tool and I have since begun work with schools to look at ways of using board games to promote discussion and embed information.
