Last year thousands across the world participated in their local areas hiding and hunting safely during the pandemic!
Game of Shrooms is like an Easter Egg Hunt for art and celebrates the spirit of unexpected surprises. Started in 2019 by Attaboy. Artists and gatherers from Hong Kong, Berlin, Japan, the UK, India, Russia, Switzerland, the US, and many more participated in the world-wide event, creating a world-wide non-religious, no cost, personally interactive “art show” of making and sharing, suspense and sometimes absolute freakin’ wonder.
This is a Leave No Trace event. Meaning: do not plant in parks, on trails or in protected areas, and collect any art that was not found. On June 12th 2021, nature (mushrooms) invades human space, not the other way around

Can anyone participate?
Yes, And of all ages and abilities. So long as you are not a jerk. And ANYONE can hunt for mushrooms, too.
Does it have to be a mushroom themed piece of art?
That’s the idea. mushrooms are varied though and art critics have not been invited to weigh in on the subject.
Can I stick stickers all over the place? No, The idea is that other people can find , collect and keep your art. Stickers are fun, but We don’t encourage harming property. Se the above How to for tips!
What if no one finds my art?
They probably will! Especially if given clues. But it’s your responsibility to go back and grab the hidden art if they don’t. Leave no trace, be a mushroom ninja. We encourage that you leave clues and tips to friends/fans before the event! And hide near landmarks. Don’t make it too hard to find. Or too easy! some of the best hiding spots are in plain site!
Can I hide my artisinal product, coupon, etc?
Nah. That’s not what this is about. Take a day off from that instead and pause the hustle and create a one of a kind piece of art and give it away. I promise you will have more fun that way. K?

I was in a depression and I was trying to regain control of my inner mental narrative," says Seifert.
