About Fun Palaces

In 1961 Joan Littlewood and architect Cedric Price conceived the Fun Palace as a ‘laboratory of fun’, ‘a university of the streets’. It was to be a temporary and moveable home to the arts and sciences that would welcome children and adults alike, based on Joan Littlewood’s motto of “Everyone an artist, everyone a scientist.” Fun Palaces is not just an event; it is a movement, putting cultural participation and public engagement at the heart, simultaneously and nationally, together – across the UK and beyond, linked nationally and internationally, virtually and actually.
