Originally beginning as fans of the AMC television series Dispatches from Elsewhere and the online ARG (Alternate Reality Game) Crystore, Inc., we quickly developed a deep appreciation for the greater message resonating from these works.
Founded in exactly the Spring of the 2020s, the Varelse Bridge Society (VBS) came together as a group of diverse, welcoming, and like-minded individuals. from across the world, with a passion for creative arts, storytelling, meaningful experiences, community building, and helping others around us.
Whether creating personal projects, art & music, engaging with our local communities, or supporting charitable organizations and causes, we seek to make the world a little more beautiful – one story at a time.
The Varelse Bridge Society strives to cultivate play, community, and inclusivity through the mutual experience and creation of immersive narratives and other artistic expressions.
Our Core Values are:
- Immersive Experiences: an appreciation of ARGs (Alternative Reality Games) and immersive narratives
- The Arts: a passion for creative arts, storytelling, and curating experiences
- Inclusion: the inclusion and welcoming of diversity – inclusion of all races, ethnicities, disabilities, genders, sexual orientations, ages, body types, spirituality, gender expression, socio-economic background, education
- Community: community building & lasting bonds with others through play
