About Bring the Happy

Bring the Happy is a project of Invisible Flock, a UK interactive art-studio known for their creative works and cutting-edge technology. 

Bring the Happy is composed of two parts:

  • The first part is the interactive map of the city on which Astana’s residents and visitors will map their moments and memories of happiness and leave small comments as to why these places are so important for them, and this part will take a month. 
  • The second part is a theatrical performance, which will be produced by Invisible Flock using the collected memories of happiness, and will be presented at the Astana Music Hall 2 to 3 August.
