Pick a genre any genre

Pick a Genre, Any Genre

  • The choices are Performance, Exhibit, Paper, or Documentary

  • Hint #1: Performances are the smallest and easiest to advance (I will also add 10 pts e.c. to any group choosing performance)

  • Hint #2: Strategic advantage to work alone, as group and individual are two separate categories for each type of project
