Event Details

Culture belongs to us all! Find out how anyone can get involved in this year's Fun Palaces weekend, 7 & 8 October 2017, 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, talents and interests of those who live there. Fun Palaces in Scotland over the last few years have included:

  • A science and crafting lab in a Leith shopping centre
  • An artist and Edinburgh universities collaboration "Curiosity Forest" installation
  • Tattoo art, pin-hole camera & felt-making workshops in Fife Libraries
  • An Alice-In-Wonderland book-themed Mad Hatters event in Wigtown

THE INVERNESS LIBRARY (HIGHLIFE HIGHLAND) AND FUN PALACES 

Invite you to a free workshop to find out how anyone, anywhere can make a Fun Palace.  

Last year, there were 292 Fun Palaces worldwide with 4800 people involved in making them and over 124,000 people participating. People gathered to make and share arts, sciences, learning, games and have FUN - this workshop is your chance to find out 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.

The workshop will also share the work of the Fun Palaces Scotland's Ambassador, Lewis Hou, who along with four other ambassadors across the UK, funders and cultural researchers, is undertaking a three year action-research project looking at best practice, developing collaborations and recording local challenges in community-led arts and science engagement across Scotland and interested in developing new partnerships in Inverness.  

This workshop is for you if:

  • You want to find out more about Fun Palaces 
  • You have never been involved in organising anything before but want to give it a try 
  • OR
  • You're already involved in arts/science/culture in Inverness but interested in new collaborations, working with more and/or different grassroot communities or getting involved in action research
  • You have access to a cultural venue who might want people to use your space in new ways
  • You've got an idea for an event and want to see how to make it happen
  • You would like to meet other people/organisations doing creative work in Inverness across arts, science & other cultural work
  • None of the above, but you are curious!   

 “Loved meeting so many other creatives within our area and realising that we can do whatever we want - the world's our oyster!!”  2015 workshop participant
