Juliane Foronda is a Filipina-Canadian artist, writer, and researcher. During her residency, she will research the board game archive at the Canadian Museum of History. From there, she will create a text-based installation scattering extracted board game phrases throughout the city of Ottawa. Through this, the city becomes similar to a game itself, with the public as participants. An interactive event will take place during the Festival.
