Bring the Happy

Bring the Happy is an ongoing project about happiness, an attempt to map moments and memories of happiness in Deptford and across the country. A first kiss, a lost love, a longed for baby, childhood heroes, a proposal, a dance, a chance encounter – where did it happen and how happy did it make you feel on a scale from 1 to 10?

On the weekend of 4 & 5 October 2014, in arts centres and museums, marquees and school halls, parks and high streets, something remarkable will occur: a vast communal celebration of arts, culture and sciences quite unlike anything that has come before. Marking the 100th birthday of Joan Littlewood, one of the Twentieth Century's most significant theatre directors and cultural innovators, Fun Palaces will bring to life the vision she created with Cedric Price for spaces linking arts and sciences, entertainment and education, a campaign of culture at the heart of all of our communities.
