cardboardia-june-4Cardboardia is one of the [BRAF]’s 2009 Grants-to-Artists recipients.  Since grants were announced in May, it is pretty exciting to see the first iteration of Carboardia 2009 summer builds.

cardboardia-june-2Cardbordia ‘towns’ are temporary, collaboratively built, inhabited towns manifesting in Moscow, Russian, Finland and Germany in the summer of 2009. Carboardia is, in essence, a role playing community, where guests can create a new identity while contributing to the growth of the town, using cardboard as their expressive and artistic medium.

Every town created under the Cardboardia title is a place where people can reinvent themselves – where, for a short time, everyone can leave behind their daily worries through new ways of self-expression.
