Fun Palaces

15 September, 2020

Bounce is thrilled to be partnering up with Meet & Make Spaces Tooting to host a Fun Palace on the 3rd October 2020.

Fun Palaces supports local people to co-create their own cultural and community events, across the UK and worldwide, sharing and celebrating the genius in everyone.

In the current climate, we are blending a digital Fun Palace with a physical get together.

During the summer, we invited young people to write 10 word stories about Tooting. They developed these into spoken word pieces. We want the community to do the same! People can tweet and respond to our social media posts with their stories and memories. These will be woven together into an online exhibition and turned into postcards to send out to people who are shielding, alone or want to connect to their community after the event.

On Saturday 3rd October, our associate artist Henry Mendoza will be hosting pop up poetry workshops outside Love Art in Tooting Market. Drop by, say hi, and share your thoughts about Tooting. Work with Henry and create your own piece of spoken word poetry.

You can see our growing gallery on the Fun Palaces page.
