Fun Palaces 2017 @ You choose :)
Oct 7 – Oct 8 all-day

Save the dates: 7th-8th October 2017

Fun Palaces is an ongoing campaign for culture at the heart of every community, with particifun-palace-illustration1_smallpation led by, for and with local people.

The 2017 Fun Palaces weekend is 7th-8th October. Anyone and everyone – anywhere –  is welcome to make a Fun Palace.

The guidelines are that each Fun Palace is :

  • Free (for people to participate)
  • Local (ideally made by local people, for local people)
  • Innovative (a space or a place doing something they don’t usually do)
  • Transformative (changes the nature of the place it happend in)
  • Engaging (so there is something for everyone, all ages, all abilities, to DO, not just observe/audience)

Fun Palaces Scotland has been set up to coordinate Scottish Fun Palaces. Keep an eye out for their preparatory meetings in 2017.
