AS part of Bristol being awarded European Green Capital 2015, a number of art projects will be springing up across the city.
The Neighbourhood Arts Programme will be driven by communities, and projects will be created with the help of professional artists and makers, inspiring Bristol to become a healthier, happier place.
Organisers are calling on members of the public to get involved in the programme, by voicing issues, sharing ideas, or helping make a community project happen.
The programme has already launched in Bishopston, Cotham and Redland, with members of the Bristol 2015 team engaging with local people, finding out what works best for different areas.
Issues will then be identified, relating to Green Capital’s main themes of transport, energy, food, resources or nature.
Finally, an artist brief will be advertised, and Bristol-based creatives will be chosen to work around chosen themes or issues. Final projects will be launched throughout the year.
An event is being held at Redland Park United Reformed Church in Whiteladies Road on January 15, 6.30-8pm, where members of the public are invited to join Bristol 2015 for a cup of tea and cake.
Share stories of what makes you proud of living in this area, or just listen to others who may inspire you.
