A series of talented events in Bishopston Library

September 28 2021

A PROJECT launched by Friends of Bishopston Library is welcoming more young people into the Library this Autumn.
A Series of Talented Events will explore how young people want to use the Library beyond books and a study space. This project invites young people local to Bishopston, Ashley Down, Horfield and St. Andrews to share ideas about how the space can be used in a more relevant and approachable way for people aged 17-23.
The Library will host a series of workshops, events and activities based on ideas, interests and themes generated by young people and will lead up to a celebration that showcases the young team’s work in December. Ultimately the project aims to bring people together from the surrounding area in a gathering with food and music and experiment with different ways the Library can be used by young people.
The project is currently assembling a small volunteer team of Ambassadors (aged 17-23) to be at the heart of the planning and promotion of events in November and December and to drive the project forward. Only with young voices can the project gather ideas and run a workshop series that truly is by and for young people.
If you are aged 17-23, are excited by the potential of libraries, the possibilities for this project and want to volunteer, email Alison Cryan (Project Coordinator) via alisonc.fobl@gmail.com by 12 noon on Monday 11 October. If you know someone else who might be interested, please pass on the information and ask them to get in touch.
You can join the Friends and support the library at facebook.com/bishopstonlibrary and bishopstonlibrary.org.uk.
A Series of Talented Events is supported by the Bristol Libraries Innovation Fund.
