Fun Palaces 2017 – Archive

Fun Palaces was a 2-day mini-festival of fun art & science in Dalton Community Centre. 

A fantastic couple of days for our first Fun Palace. Lots of art, craft and a little science for all to enjoy, rounded off both days with free refreshments including Shaun’s famous homemade soups.

The Fun Palaces manifesto

We believe in the genius in everyone, in everyone an artist and everyone a scientist, and that creativity in community can change the world for the better.

We believe we can do this together, locally, with radical fun – and that anyone, anywhere, can make a fun palace.
