Fun Palaces

EBI is delighted to be working with organisation Fun Palaces as one of five science and arts ambassadors based around the UK. We will work with Fun Palaces until October 2019 to build a network of community and cultural partners across Bristol and facilitate the creation of grassroots art/science projects that engage communities with health research.

The programme will not only allow us to deepen the work we do locally and regionally, but also to learn from the interdisciplinary nature of the programme, supporting and engaging with other ambassadors across the UK and working together on an action research project.

Calling health researchers and Bristol residents! 

Come and make a Fun Palace - an arts and science event by, for and with Bristol’s communities during the global Fun Palaces campaign on 6 and 7 October 2018. 

Join in to... develop your engagement, communication and facilitation skills, receive 1:1 support and free training workshops, make new connections with potential partners and have fun! 

This year’s theme is PATTERN! What patterns are there in your work? Are you a researcher working with anything from DNA to neurons, cells, diagrams, data or soundwaves? Are you a resident who knits one purls one, plants seeds in rows or has a talent for Henna? Bring your skills to make a Fun Palace together!
