What is Fun Palaces?

In 2015, the Fun Palaces weekend is 3rd and 4th October.

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.

As Article 27.1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 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.”
