Partocracy ft. JAZAS & Eastern Spirit (2017)

Emanuel Macron won the elections in France in 2017, NFL player Colin Kapernik knelt during the performance of the anthem in protest against police brutality and started a new kind and a new wave of protests. Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk got into a heated argument because it was revealed that Facebook's artificial intelligence not only developed its own language, but also the ability to deceive its users, and Beyonce announced that she was expecting twins with a photo that was liked by over 11 million people. It was announced that Serbia will enter the EU by 2025, and among the terms that people from Serbia most often searched on Google that year were Zadruga, Pink, Ubice moga oca and Ikea Srbija ...

Aware of the fact that young people through primary and secondary school do not acquire sufficient knowledge about democratic institutions and values, their rights and responsibilities, and that they are often not ready or motivated to be active and responsible citizens; as well as that due to numerous scandals, quarrels and corruption that are present on our public and political scene, they develop apathy, acquire a negative image of basic democratic institutions and processes and do not want to participate in them - we tried to animate them in a different way, through fun and socializing, through a board game, called - Partocracy.

The goal was to show how democratic institutions function, what the election process looks like and why it is important to participate in it, what are the differences between existing political ideologies and what should be kept in mind when deciding when to vote. Also, the goal was to point out in a satirical way the main shortcomings and negative phenomena in the field of functioning of institutions, citizens' rights, media freedoms and activities of political parties in the country.

During the creation process, there was a large number of young people from Zajecar who liked the idea and wanted to participate in the testing of the game. After the game appeared at the ceremonial promotion, almost all social game clubs from the territory of Serbia expressed their desire to have a copy of the game. During the promotional period alone, over 200 young people played Partocracy.
