for a Night:
of the Cabinet of the Government of the United Kingdom
A collaborative role playing game for Matt's
Gallery's 35th Birthday Fundraiser
Minister for a Night is a spinning centrepiece for a dinner table.
When the table stops spinning each dinner guest role-plays the Cabinet
Minister nearest to them, for the duration of the evening. Alternatively
the table can be spun between courses and roles exchanged. Sheets
are handed out with key information on each of the selected ten Ministers
and their chief governmental responsibilities.
For the fundraiser
12 artists each made a table work and at the end of the evening a tombola
Minister for a Night was won by one of the managing directors of Xenon
Capital Partners, 'the leading Russia-based investment and advisory
firm', who will transport the table to Moscow where it may encourage dinner
guests to take on, for a night, the responsibilities of the UK Government.
