Fun Palaces is a national campaign placing culture at the heart of local communities with an annual weekend of action on 7 to 8 October

“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” The Fun Palaces Manifesto
