Participate in a Happening near you! 

We are very excited to announce a series of new Happenings around the globe. 

Starting at Glastonbury Festival in June Stuart Semple will collaborate with global communities in over 30 locations including to realize a series of Happenings: ‘Joy Sandwitch’ from South America, to Europe, UK, the USA, The Philipines, Puerto Rico, Canada and just about everywhere in between.

These participatory events will take place across galleries and museums, hackspaces, coffee shops, public spaces, tattoo parlours, private homes, backyards, community centres and university campuses.

Participating in ‘Joy Sandwich’ is totally free and open to all. 

Each happening will be entirely led by the hosting community and will evolve in it’s own unique way. 

The happenings themselves are top secret until the day, but expect to explore ideas of joy, connection community and rebuilding.
