Pillow Palace is our new project for 2023. It is a virtual art exhibition, built in Minecraft, for and by autistic young people.
We’re looking for Minecrafters aged 13+ to build with us, to create their perfect personal space, filled with things that make them happy.
Why Pillow Palace?
Last year, we attended a workshop on how to curate an exhibition.
We were tasked to design our own imaginary exhibition based on a type of person. No limits or restrictions; physical, financial or otherwise.
We decided to think about what would make a perfect exhibition for autistic people… and that turned into Pillow Palace.
You can read more about our thought process here.
How can I join in?
This is an online project that you join virtually using your own computer/device.
To participate, you need to be 13+, able to commit to an orientation session (approx 1.5hrs) and 1+ build sessions (up to 3 hrs each, leave when you want), and there’s an optional review session (approx 1 hr).
We’ll give you a free login for Minecraft Education edition and access to the project Discord server – all the deets are here.
We’re thrilled to be running two build groups as part of Turf Projects’ MAKEROOM season of events, generously funded by the Arts Council England.
