The Tournament of Beasts by DodoLab
About : On Friday, November 12th, 2010, DodoLab and SACY (Sudbury Action Centre for Youth) staged the First Annual Tournament of Beasts in Sudbury’s Memorial Park (Ontario, Canada). The project featured a croquet competition between a half-dozen animals (raccoon, bear, wolf, rabbit, deer and moose) and was staged as a catalyst to encourage public discussion about the use and control of public spaces. The project is part of a larger community initiative in Sudbury being developed in collaboration with the Musagetes Foundation, Ontario Trillium Foundation, SACY, Carrefour Sudbury and Metis Council of Sudbury.

DodoLab is an art and design based program that employs experimental and adaptive processes to spark positive change and resiliency. We work collaboratively with a diversity of emergent thinkers/doers to imaginatively and critically repurpose familiar tools of the social sciences, marketing and activism to engage with the public in public. Our focus is the complex relationships between people and their surroundings and how communities define, and are defined by, their environment. DodoLab puts the creative process at the heart of confronting social and environmental challenges.
