The Black-E has been exploring and creating games for over 40 years. Staff and invited guests play them weekly. They have been played in art colleges, schools, youth clubs, and art galleries. They have been played indoors and outdoors. They run across art forms. Sometime the playing of the games is an end in itself. Sometimes the games lead to the creation of visual works, music CDs, videos, poems, stories, and dances.
Behind these games lies ( the thought 'We Are The Food We Eat - We Are The Games We Play'). The first half of that thought has now been well debated and accepted. The second half has not. Black-E games are games which are fun to play and which present the players with the challenges of co-operation. They are culturally diverse arts-based games (sometimes with an element of sports) which promote creativity. They are games which are a metaphor for the challenges of living in peace together rather than games which are a metaphor for warfare.
