The People's Palace of Possibility in Doncaster: Call-Out For ParticipantsBack in the first lockdown of 2020 The Bare Project adapted their show, The People’s Palace of Possibility, to take the form of an interactive story of rebellion told through the post. Over 600 people across the country took part, contributing their thoughts, images and reimaginings of how things could be done differently. These contributions built the foundations of the Palace Archive: a national digital archive of hopes and fears for the future.Now The Bare Project team need your help to build the Palace Kitchen, live in Doncaster! They'll be exploring what a just food system looks, tastes and feels like: exploring food justice, hosting conversations and workshops with artists, bakers, foragers and growers, and sharing food and stories at community meals in the town.

There are two different ways to get involved:1) Join the public workshops – just one, or as many as you like! All workshops are pay-what-you-decide (free to book, with optional cash donations on the day) and they will all include a meal unless otherwise stated.
