    Fun Palaces

    A Fun Palace will be popping up near you on 4/5 October 2014, local people and communities sharing arts, culture and sciences in a national and international simultaneous campaign for participation and culture. Find your nearest Fun Palace here. (If you can't find one near you, maybe that's because you're the best person to get it going...?!)

    Phoenix Fun Palace The Phoenix Fun Palace will be created and led by young people living in South Lewisham. In preparation for the main event we will be testing some ideas and getting creative during our Summer Fun programme. This will include: making processional art works and writing slogans; constructing, decorating and flying kites; designing and building items for the public realm including bird boxes, bug houses and signage; learning about edible plants, nutrition, flavours, tastes, aromas so we can make our own ice creams; finding out how many watts we can create using our pedal power and then generating enough to make delicious smoothies and power our own disco. We will also be building a team and finalising plans for the Phoenix Fun Palace. Phoenix Fun Palace will be supported by Phoenix Community Housing, a not-for-profit resident-led housing association in the Bellingham, Whitefoot, Downham areas of south Lewisham, London.

    The Dartington and Totnes Fun Palace, Totnes in Devon We hope to take over an empty retail space in Totnes on Saturday 4th October and this would become our theatre for the day. The space would be internally decorated and redesigned by King Edward VI Community College and Schumacher students. It would become a theatre for the day to showcase their art, science and music. We would ask KEVICC Folk Club (KFC) if they would like to play and teach music to the community for the day. We would pin it on the map – using viral marketing that was a bit edgy. We would finish the day with a newly formed street band processing, led by Stefan Harding who would give a Time Walk through Totnes, down through the back street car-parks to the river. We would stop at the community gardens to play music. Facebook: Twitter: The Dartington Hall Trust

    Fun Forest, Grove 2, Gilmore Park, Edinburgh Our proposal is an evolving forest which acts as an active context for a set of events about vegetal life. Each piece of this forest is an evolving device made of reused packaging filled with soil and seeds, which registers the effect of time upon natural and artificial materials. Furthermore, the forest as a whole evidences the pattern of consumption by a community in its everyday life. The event will consist of a theatrical play about how different plants and crops are getting on (or not) as companion plants. www.grovecommunit... Facebook:
