Join in with Fun Palaces at home or in the museum for 2020.
For Fun Palaces this year we have commissioned artists Amber Goneni and Yvonne Shelling to work with local communities to create a Fun Palaces activity pack for you to make at home.
The activity packs will help you to celebrate the brilliance of your own creativity as well as that of your neighbourhood!
We will be encouraging you to complete the activities and create tiny Fun Palaces in your homes, windows and even on your pavements outside.
We'd then love for you to share your creations with us by uploading a picture of them here.
Listen while you create
Amber and Yvonne have worked with local communities to create a unique playlist for you to listen to as you get making your Fun Palace. The songs are intended to help you relax and to inspire you in your creative pursuit. Happy listening!
Crafts from home
In the museum
Amber and Yvonne will collate all of the responses we receive into a huge artwork that will be placed in the windows of the National Maritime Museum to celebrate our fantatsically creative and resilient local communities.
You can also take part in a workshop at the museum on Saturday 3 October led by Amber and Yvonne to continue adding to the giant artwork in our windows!
This is a drop in session but you will need to book a free ticket to the National Maritime Museum.
How to get involved
We will be sending out activity packs to local residents at the end of September.
If you don't receive one in the post you will be able to download or print one from this webpage.
The deadline for submitting images to appear in the final artwork is Thursday 1 October at 5pm.
