Fun Palaces has never before commissioned artists, not least because we believe everyone is an artist.

However, in the wake of the Covid crisis, in response to Black Lives Matter, and with a recognition that we want to do still more to encourage greater inclusion in Fun Palaces both as events and across all of our work, we are choosing to commission a group of artists this year.

Our provocation is to consider how tiny revolutions of connection in community can help contribute to a more equal, inclusive, and generous society. We understand these tiny revolutions to be the core of our work and we have asked six artists to interpret this idea in whatever way feels right for their work, for their art form and for this present moment.

The artworks that are created will in some way encourage others to take part in this year’s 1000 Tiny Fun Palaces in a way that is safe for them and their community, maintaining the connections that have developed during lock down. 

Watch this space. We will be confirming the participating artists very soon.
