Bristol City Council: Bristol’s Art in City Hall

Bristol City Council wants to provide an opportunity for all our communities to be represented through art in the corridors and public spaces of the civic heart of the city, which is why we are inviting artists to enter their artworks for the first Bristol’s Art in City Hall programme.

We’re looking for one wall-based artwork from each of Bristol’s 34 wards in order to showcase local talent and use the walls of City Hall as a platform for stories from across the city. This programme, which my office is leading in partnership with the Council’s Culture team, will be the first collective arts exhibition in City Hall. Submission is free and open to Bristol-based artists, community groups, schools or arts organisations.

This project is about ensuring that City Hall as a public building truly represents the communities it works for. By giving the people of Bristol the opportunity to showcase their creativity in City Hall I hope that they will feel greater ownership of this key civic space.

Submissions via email for the first round of selection will be accepted between Monday 2 March and Friday 27 March 2020. For more details about entry requirements and the submission form, please see the documents you can download below.

We look forward to seeing your submissions.
