We’re excited to be taking part in this year’s Fun Palace weekend. Fun Palaces are community-focused cultural activities, and over the weekend there will be a diverse programme of events taking place across the country.
The Centre for Material Texts will be teaming up with the Bristol Poetry Institute to take part in the ‘Living Well Fun Palace’ in Bristol Central Library today (Saturday 6 October) from 2-4.30pm.
We’d like to invite you to join us in making poetry which explores ideas of ‘Living Well’. We’ll be the using texts that we can find around us in the Fun Palace for inspiration: come along ready to use scissors, glue, and your imagination.
There’ll be a whole host of other activities at the Fun Palace too, including: bike-powered smoothie making; bike decoration with graffiti artists; activities relating to music and memory; and activities focusing on re-imagining health care.
The Fun Palace is aimed at all ages, so if you and your family are looking for something to do this weekend, why not come down and join us? And if you can’t make it into central Bristol, do have a look at the Fun Palace map to see if there’s anything going on near you.
