The Artist Hotel – Opening Night

09/06/2017 - 10/06/2017
6/9/17 5:30 pm - 6/10/17 12:00 pm

Be the first guests to spend the night at The Artist Hotel: Knowle West!

Knowle West Media Centre is looking for passionate socially-engaged artists to join us at the beginning of The Artist Hotel – an exciting project exploring how artists and communities can create more sustainable models for living, working and making art across the whole city – from centre to suburb.

We invite you to join us in Knowle West to sleep over, meet local people, explore the area and talk more about how we can co-create the spaces and tools needed to counter dominant but deficient models of ‘regeneration’.

Two micro-commissions for socially engaged artworks will be announced on the night.

Friday 9th June:

5.30pm: Meet at Knowle West Media Centre and see the current exhibition about citizen-led housing.
6pm-7pm: Join a walking tour of Knowle West – panoramic views, pioneering urbanism and hidden gems.
7pm-late: Be special guests at Filwood Community Centre’s award ceremony dinner and disco: Hearts and Stars
Late till morning: Sleepover / Camp

Saturday 10th June:

10am-12 noon: Breakfast Discussion – How and where do artists live/work/make in the city? Co-hosted with Coexist

Please note:

Two ticket types are available: the Artist Hotel Experience (£15 plus booking fee) and Breakfast Discusion (free).

We will meet at Knowle West Media Centre, Leinster Avenue, Bristol, BS4 1NL on Friday 9th June but all subsequent activities will take place at Filwood Community Centre, Barnstaple Road, Bristol.

Further information about the event and full details of what you will need to bring for the sleepover / camp will be provided in advance.
