“If the thing is impossible, you need not trouble yourselves about it; if possible, try for it.” John Ruskin

Dear concerned citizens,

This is an invitation to help build the People’s Palace of Possibility: to discover distant utopias, air your frustrations and fears, and to take action to realise a better – or at least less bleak – tomorrow.

The Palace has many residents, nearly all of whom want to help you. Please arrive promptly. There’s really no time to lose.

An uplifting, collaborative experience created by theatre and interactive arts company, The Bare Project, with The Centre for Understanding Sustainable Prosperity and John Ruskin’s Guild of Saint George.

“Such a thought-provoking and enthusiastic, imploring installation. More, more, more please!” Audience response, Millennium Gallery Sheffield, May 2019

The Bare Project are theatre makers and philosophers, happily based in Sheffield. They have been making work together since 2012. Their form changes: sometimes it’s a script and a stage, other times an installation and, at other times, a conversation. But right now they’re thinking about planting trees. They’re worried, but trying to keep it light. They’re reaching out a hand.
