Trinity Arts Centre: Art of Resistance

Trinity is currently running an exciting heritage art project, Art of Resistance, exploring the role of Art in Activist movements in Bristol. As part of this, we have programmed a series of free events and workshops this summer so people can come along, take part and find out more about creative acts of resistance. 

A Banner For Bristol  

Bristol is a city of protest. What if you could capture all those aspects of protest in one image, better still one banner?
