About

What is The Lotería Project?

The Lotería Project is a reimagining of the classic Mexican game of chance, LoteríaNailivic Studios takes inspiration from the iconic imagery within this multi-generational game, and by creating new and relevant designs, plans to use this project as a tool for education, self-awareness and change. Each image provides an opportunity to explore our own personal journey, as well as reflect upon our connection with community. The stories behind each design encourage us to consider our past, our present, our environment, our identity, our fears and our capacity for growth and action.

54 Opportunities

Our ultimate goal is to design all 54 Lotería images, using creative freedom to redefine them. Once the 54 images are complete, we will produce a complete Lotería game that includes a custom deck of 54 Lotería cards, six game boards (tablas) and a bag of beans as markers. We will also have a booklet containing these images and their stories, in both English and Spanish, to be used by educators, parents and anyone who wishes to celebrate the rich history of Lotería and its role in Latinx / Hispanic culture. It will also be a tool for conversation, community-building and personal growth.

By supporting our Patreon, you are helping us bring this project to life. With your support, we can achieve our goal and dedicate more time to completing this endeavor. By joining our project you will have access to exclusive content on our monthly blogs, annual rewards, gift cards and patron-only polls; your voice will help shape the direction the Lotería Project takes!
