Contact Mick or Juliette at edlab@mmu.ac.uk if you would like to support this one-off library project

Fun palaces coming to a library near you!

 Fun palaces are a way of bringing together Art, Science, local community and FUN!!

They’re inspired by Article 27.1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights  which says:

“Everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits.”

Have you got a skill, hobby, interest or burning passion that you’d like to share with others?

Are you an enthusiastic cook? Can you share the science or art of cooking? Maybe you’re a mathematician and you’ve got some fun number science to share? Are you an artist, traditional or contemporary, realistic, abstract using watercolors, pencils, inks or digital tools? We want to invite you all and more besides to come and share your skills with others in our participating libraries on Sat 1 October.

 

You don’t need to be a skilled teacher or workshop provider but just have a desire to share and give others hands on experience of “your thing”

 

Activities could include, crocheting, knitting, drawing, math, astronomy, astrology, mechanics, coding, raspberry pi’s, Arduinos, microbits, cooking, sports science – how best to kick a football, fractals, Minecraft,  quantum physics??? And much,  much more. As long as it’s got a science or arts angle, (which more or less covers everything right?), we want to hear from you.
