The Townarium Experiment is an exploration of building community from the dreams of its inhabitants, without regulations, or concerns about profit and loss. A live experiment in town planning/playing cooperatively and dreaming big together.
A collaboration with artist Carrie Love, the Townarium takes form through workshops with local groups, and gatherings in social spaces. Participants explore what they want to build in their community, sharing their strengths and needs to make their offerings. Using simple materials together we create a 3d map- a visual reference for the imaginative vision of our emerging community. Together we dream up; the traditions of our town/how we get around/how we connect/where we meet/the landscape/what the town is famous for. We have worked with Creativity Works, BANES council, and Fringe Arts Bath with over 150 participants aged between 4 – 76.
