Opening in Joplin Lane at Kambri at ANU this February, Game On is a vibrant contemporary pop-up arcade parlour with a vintage feel. Free for ANU students, staff and visitors, Game On features pinball and arcade machines, plus air hockey, ping pong and more. It’s a stress-free haven to game, socialise, and be immersed in creativity.
Contributing to the lively atmosphere, the space is punctuated by specially commissioned large-scale artworks created by the exceptional talent from the ANU School of Art & Design (SOAD) including Faith Kerehona, Izaäk Bink, Samantha Corbett,
Game On is presented by Kambri at ANU, and produced and curated by aMBUSH Gallery Canberra. It will be open 7 days a week, free of charge and just in time for O Week! Opening hours are 10am until 4pm daily.
Designed to be student-owned and relevant, Game On will also feature an evolving artwork activation area, giving visitors the opportunity to contribute to the visual environment through the use of paste-ups, a sticker wall, and a chalkboard with the prompt “I am inspired by …” to which they’re encouraged to respond with their own musings. It’s a welcoming environment where everyone is invited to get in on the gaming action, enjoy the art from SOAD talent, contribute to the communal display, or just relax.
