Performance and participation with pizza and prosecco
– the official opening of The Happenstance

Friday the 25th of May at 15:00-17:00
Venue: Palazzo Zenobio, Collegio Armeno Moorat Raphael, Dorsoduro 2596, Venezia 30123.
(Enter via Calle dei Vecchi)
Vaporetto stop: San Basilio (3 minute walk).

The Happenstance establishes a Freespace in the garden at the heart of Palazzo Zenobio, to host all-comers to build new possibilities together for the freedoms we urgently need to claim. The team of Artists and Architects, selected by WAVEparticle, are experts in play, and we will encourage everyone into a vital relationship with the built environment, using play as an active agent within the process of rethinking and reclaiming their Freespace.

The Happenstance is promoted by the Scotland + Venice partnership: Scottish Government, Architecture and Design Scotland, Creative Scotland, British Council and Year of Young People.
