WHAT IS A FUN PALACE?
A Fun Palace could be a tent, a foyer, a hall, a car park, a square, filled with music, dance, movies, sciences, politics, TV, theatre, art, stories, lectures, play – FUN.
It is made by local people for local people.
What do YOU want it to be?
What COULD it be, for where you live?
The Fun Palace, as originally dreamed, was never created, but ... on the 4th and 5th October 2014 there will be a series of Fun Palaces across the UK and beyond. Each will be unique, self-generating, self-supporting, utterly local. Some may just be moments, some may take over venues for the whole weekend, some may be in parks, schools, scout huts – they will be as varied as the locations, organizations, individuals that inspire them. They will be as varied as you are.
Over 150 venues, companies and organisations across the UK and beyond have already expressed interest in making their own Fun Palaces, along with hundreds of independent artists and scientists. And many more are welcome to join. Take part.
