Bedford Happy is a town-wide artwork by Dan Thompson, in Bedford, December 2013-March 2014
I had the pleasure of meeting Dan briefly in the Transported Art Pop-up Shop in Boston and as I have been Artist in Residence at Priory Lower School, Bedford for about 8 years now, love mail art and postcard projects I thought this would be another mini project I could contribute to! It made me happy!
The postcards will be on display in the Bedford Happy research lab during Coffee With Art at Bedford Creative Arts on Saturday 29th March.
Here are some other events you can participate in via Bedford happy
"There is a chance to nab some Free fudge! Will you find a yellow ticket, hidden around Bedford town centre on Saturday 29th March?
Bring a book, take a book, stop for a coffee. The Bedford Happy pop up library is at Coffee With Art for one day, Saturday 29th March.
Music makes people happy. Dancing makes people happy. Eating makes people happy. So to end Bedford Happy, we're borrowing the West Indian Social & Cultural Society. Bring down your favourite record, and we'll play it on the club's sound system. We'll provide traditional West Indian fried chicken and dumplings too. See you there, with your 7"s."
You can find out all the things that makes Bedford Happy on their Facebook Page - looks like it's going to be a fabulous day!
