The Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees, opened two new art spaces in City Hall’s vestibules, former entrances located at either end of the building, to give cultural and community groups unique environments to share their projects and ideas through exhibitions, performances, cinemas and pop up art markets. He approached us whilst I was the Company Manager for Artspace Lifespace to submit a proposal to curate and manage these spaces.
Working alongside Bristol City Council’s Arts Development Team we invited local community groups and artists to express their interest in taking advantage of this unique opportunity and produced a programme of diverse exhibitions and events.
Our aim was to contribute to the vitality and security of the city’s cultural landscape by providing opportunities for talent to flourish and continue to play a big role in developing Bristol’s growing culture economy. What better way to do that than bring cultural and community groups together in one of Bristol’s most famous locations.
