Play workshop: CA$HFLOW was a series of workshops led by Isabella Dampney.
CA$HFLOW was the second in the Play workshop series exploring playful practice at Chez Derriere. The workshops took place on Thursday 3 August and Saturday 5 August.
Those who participated in the workshop played the financial board game, Cash Flow: How To Get Out Of The Rat Race. Cash Flow is a board game produced by self-help guru Robert Kiyosaki, who established his no-nonsense financial advice empire in the 90s with the publication of his book Rich Dad, Poor Dad. Boosted by appearances on Oprah, Kiyosaki constructed an international brand as a Donald Trump-esque self-made millionaire and promised to share his insights with anyone ready to accept his wisdom.
Dampney was interested in hearing participant's stories and reflections on their relationships to money and families. These sessions will influence a commissioned series of paintings by Dampney, which will be exhibited at Chez Derriere in October.
