Event description

Description

Sat 20th July, 3-5pm / Pay What You Feel


A free 2 hour art and poetry making workshop for people of all ages and backgrounds, using sci-fi, robots, aliens and space travel to explore neurodiversity, disability, gender, and the idea of being an outsider, as part of the development for a new family show called Spectacular Spacebots.

This workshop will be one of 6 happening around the UK and is suitable for children, adults, artists, animators, poets and anyone interested in having a go and seeing where their imagination takes them.

Spectacular Spacebots is about a robot called Hashtag who wants more than anything to be human. It explores toxic ideas about masking and having to act "normal" in order to be accepted as human, in a fun and vibrant way, mixing poetry, song, projection mapped animation and live digital puppetry.

Edalia Day is a trans/non-binary spoken word artist, animator and theatre maker based in Norwich.


The cafe/bar and the People’s Palace of Possibility installation will be open half an hour before each event. A Future Fantastic Festival is presented by The Bare Project in collaboration with Ruskin in Sheffield, Centre for Understanding Sustainable Prosperity, Theatre Deli and The Guild of St George.
