Get involved

Hunch involves a programme of public events that explore the history of University Arms, Cambridge, Parker’s Piece and their location in Cambridge.

 

Through these events artist Emma Smith will invite people to contribute their ideas about the future, based on things they have a hunch might happen but which they cannot yet prove.

We invite you to join us for guided walks, workshops, events and activities and to contribute your hunch to the project!

All activities are free. Join our mailing list to be the first to hear about upcoming events. To contact us please email info@hunch.exchange.
