We have always said that Fun Palaces are about the tiniest of connections, person to person – and that the process of creating a Fun Palace is easily as important as what happens on the weekend. As we say in our Manifesto:
We believe we can do this together, locally, with radical fun – and that anyone, anywhere, can make a Fun Palace.
Now it’s time to give it a try …
We are sharing practical suggestions, tiny steps anyone can take to connect a little more in their local community or simply pass time creatively in self-isolation. These steps are both online and OFFline – while a great deal of connection is moving online right now, this is not available to everyone and we want Fun Palaces, as ever, to be for anyone who wants to connect.
Try out these ideas (all of which are great for a Fun Palace) and send us your suggestions (email Stella) – we can share these as blogs, videos or audio. Keep it brief, 300 written words or 2-3 mins maximum of recorded material, that way we’ll have space to share even more.
things to do at any time – in isolation, lockdown and when we’re safe to connect in person again, maybe at your Fun Palace in October?
