Meet new creative talent at Triple Bill

We’re inviting schools, artists, young people and creative sector employers to join us for an evening of networking and activity that celebrates Bristol’s young media pioneers and offers employers the chance to meet new talent.

The Triple Bill event on Thursday 26th March will mark the launch of Eight, a new platform for supported employment for 18-30s that aims to build networks between creative sector employers and young people. Employers will have a chance to network with young creatives, see examples of work they’ve already produced, and find out more about the possibilities of working together.

Visitors will be some of the first to see ‘The Glowing Divide’, an interactive documentary about social isolation amongst 13-19 year olds – and what can be done to tackle it. There will be an opportunity to meet KWMC’s Junior Digital Producers: a team of filmmakers, researchers and coders aged 18-24 who have been employed for six months through the Creative Employment Programme.

The evening will also include the re-launch of KWMC’s programme for 10-25 year olds as Jump Studios.

The event takes place at Knowle West Media Centre, Leinster Avenue, Bristol, BS4 1NL, from 5-7pm. For more details call 0117 903 0444.

Bring ‘I’m Staying’ to South Bristol

Knowle West Media Centre needs your help to bring a fantastic new artwork to South Bristol!

Shaun C Badham’s neon artwork ‘I’m Staying’ was illuminated above Arnolfini during the Bristol Art Weekender – and with public support it could be brought over the river… With the help of the Bristol Biennial, ‘I’m Staying’ will be travel around the city over a two year period, addressing ideas of place and change, permanence and transition.

The project was first launched as part of the Bristol Art Weekender, hosted by Arnolfini. Next, the artwork travelled to Bristol Folk House at the launch of Bristol Biennial 2014, where it stayed from September 2014 to January 2015. I’M STAYING currently resides at the Redgrave Theatre, Clifton College, where it will remain until May 2015.

You can vote for KWMC as the next venue here.
