In it's fourth incarnation, PLAY SMART brings things...together.

Play Smart IV features:

  • Artists working together - Benjamin Frederickson with Silvia Prada, and Carmine Santaniello with Jayson Keeling. Each artist produced their own card, and also produced one card as a pair. The idea was to have artists, play smart together.
  • Organizations working together - This round of Play Smart includes four cards with information on the back, created in collaboration with the Sero Project and Streetwise and Safe. Topics include: “No Condoms as Evidence”, “Prevention Beyond Condoms”, “Testing” and “HIV is Not A Crime”.
  • A chance for people to play together - Each pack contains a mad lib prompt card so people can discuss the topics together.
