Thanks for your support this year

We reflect on how your support has helped communities access and shape arts and culture this year

Thanks to your support this year we continued to respond, amplify and empower communities through the arts.

We launched our new-seasonal outdoor venue, The Den, creating a space to platform up-and-coming artists. We hosted family-friendly day raves, summer parties and two-free community Garden Parties that welcomed over 4000 people.

"Garden parties were fantastic, and summer family Peachin' event. Love the diversity and support from Friday stay-and-play"​ Audience feedback

We created pathways for some of the youngest members of the community to take part in creative provision. Creative Play sessions, delivered in collaboration with East Bristol Children’s Centre, offered a free-to-access provision for families with young children who were disproportionately affected by Lockdown.

We uncovered, celebrated and preserved Bristol’s rich history of activism through murals, podcasts, conferences, performances and immersive exhibitions as part of Art of Resistance.

We have collaborated with over 90 partner organisations to empower residents through the arts offering outdoor cooking projects in our community garden, discos for the over 50s and bespoke support to help people develop ideas and secure funding for community arts projects.

Thank you so much for your support – we could not do this without you.

We are looking forward to 2023 where we will continue to use the arts as a vehicle to celebrate with and connect to communities and hope you can join us too.
