Psychology at Bristol Fun Palaces Weekend 2018

Fun Palaces, Urban Vision Project 2018

8 October 2018

Bristol Fun Palaces Weekend was held from the 6th October until the 7th October 2018. The weekend let guests explore health-inspired arts and science activities with University of Bristol researchers and Bristol's residents.

The weekend this year was all about Patterns! 

The Urban Vision Project from the School of Psychological Science contributed with 'Walking Senses'. 

The project focuses on whether floor or wall patterns influence the way we walk or how we feel. At the Fun Palace Walking Senses, people walked over visual illusions, created visual patterns that reflect their community and shared their experiences about how they experience sensory environments in Bristol. 

Our youngest member to take part was just three months old and the eldest was in their late 80s. All together, they had lived in 30 different countries across the world. 

Well done to all of the members of the Urban Vision Project and our wonderful student helpers (Mubaraka Muchhala, Yiheng Yu, Qing Han, Katie Drax, Marin Dujmovic, Milton Llera Montero, Anca Dobrescu, Grieg Dickson and Daria Burtan) who volunteered at the event. Also, a big thank you to all of those who came along and supported the campaign.
