In 2016, we asked for your help to create The People’s Tower. Do you remember? It was assembled on the Saturday of Freedom Festival using only cardboard boxes and human power, before being demolished in a mass celebration.
Created by French artist Olivier Grossetête, as well as the city of Hull, the structure’s concept has travelled around the world with its creator, appearing at festivals in Marseilles (France), Sydney (Australia), Shenyang (China) and Festival Guagalajara in Mexico.
The collaboration in building the tower is where the magic happens and the atmosphere and sheer joy the tower generated was astonishing. For this activity, we want you to search your house for empty cardboard boxes and other unwanted cardboard items and use them to build your own People’s Tower.
Freedom Festival and the city of Hull is built on a rich history of pioneers, thinkers, creators and makers. As we navigate these difficult times, we're using the power of culture to keep you inspired and creative.
It's a free, fun downloadable resource for the whole family, which only requires imagination and some cardboard boxes.
