Welcome to the Fun Palace
There’s something about the name – Fun Palace – that gives the game away. The blurb describes it as a spot of culture mixed with a dash of science in a laboratory of fun. Having fun seems to be compulsory and these palaces can happen anywhere just so long as it’s free to enter and run by and for local people. What’s not to like? Over time, an international movement of these fun palaces has evolved. Govanhill Baths is hosting a workshop on 2nd June for any communities interested in creating one.
Culture belongs to us all! Find out how anyone anywhere can make a Fun Palace, where everyone is an artist and everyone a scientist. Change the world with radical fun.
A Fun Palace is a free, local event using arts and science to celebrate each unique community and the skills and interests of those who live there.
FUN PALACES AND GOVANHILL BATHS…..
Invite you to a free workshop to find out how anyone, everywhere can make a Fun Palace.
Last year there were 142 Fun Palaces across the country with 2079 people involved in making them and over 50,000 people participating. People gathered to make and share arts, sciences, learning, games and have FUN – this workshop is your chance to find out more about how to get involved. You don’t need to be an expert in anything to make a Fun Palace – you just need to want to make something happen (however tiny) with and for the people that live around you.
“Loved meeting so many other creatives within our area and realising that we can do whatever we want – the world’s our oyster!!” A 2015 workshop participant
