"A wonderful memory, after a tasty meal from the local Chinese restaurant, the servers always brought me a cookie to complete the meal. This sweet delight was such a treat not only because it tasted great, but there was that wee slip of paper, my fortune." - Patrick Li

Patrick Li's exhibition, Fortune Room, is now open at our Preston Gallery and we are celebrating with a community project anyone can take part in. Pick up your free Good Fortune kit at any Idea Exchange location and help us spread Good Fortune around Cambridge.

Inspired by Patrick's show, write your own "Good Fortunes" to insert in paper fortune cookies. All the necessary supplies are included in our take and make kit.

Your Good Fortune kit contains:
- Supplies and instructions to make three, 3D paper "Good Fortune" cookies. Get inspired by pictures and quotes from Patrick's exhibition.
- A fortune cookie colouring sheet for some 2D fun.
- A fortune cookie treat to eat

Once you make your Good Fortune cookies, take pictures and tag us with #CAGGoodFortune and then spread that positivity around by giving them to friends and family in your bubble.
