Bristol Creative Spaces Call Out

Bristol City Council's Bristol Creative Spaces would like to invite all creatives to apply for residencies, exhibition and showcase opportunities in their two spaces in the upcoming winter season program. Open to all levels and disciplines, making sure the projects are suitable for the spaces. (photographers, illustrators, designers, performers, dance, installation work, painters, sound installations, pop ups etc).

The two available spaces are: 

The Edwardian Cloakroom
The Redcliffe Bridge Control Room

BCC are unable to offer funding or support for projects. However, they do offer these spaces to artists free of charge in order to develop their work and practices and contribute to the creative and cultural landscape of Bristol. 

The winter season covers three months from January through to the end of March 2015.

The closing date for applications is Sunday 5 October 2014. 

For more information and to apply to use one of the spaces please visit our webpage

Bristol Biennial 2014: Crossing the Line

Fri, 12/09/2014 - Sun, 21/09/2014

Over 40 artists will take part in the Bristol Biennial, an artist-led festival that celebrates engaging projects by emerging artists. Running from the 12 - 21 September 2014, the festival takes 'Crossing the Line' as its theme, and will explore artistic boundaries and encourage collaboration across the city. Artworks will pop up in churches, shopping malls, community centres, terraced houses and high streets and will include interactive exhibitions, moving sculptures, a secret music gig and unusual guided tours.

St Andrews Park and the Northern Slopes will play host to an ancient uprising of Grass Men, where audiences can witness a performative and sculptural intervention by artist Ashley Peevor. Fountains in the city centre will be transformed into a temporary cranberry farm. Artists Hanna & Julia Rohn will make a colourful intervention in Bristol’s harbourside, highlighting both the aesthetics and politics of mass food production.

The full Bristol Biennial 2014 programme can be found here.  For more information click here.

Photo Captions: Keep an eye out for unusual figures emerging in green spaces around Bristol. Ashley Peevor's Grass Men bring a touch of the absurd and a hint of ancient mysticism back to the urban environment.
