Our Autumn / Winter exhibition explores the hidden heritage of Knowle West and marks 100 years since the first council estates were built in Bristol.
From its ‘Garden City’ ideals to its ‘Do It Yourself’ (DIY) culture, explore what Knowle West has meant to people for nearly 10 decades.
Experience new artworks, hear local stories and revisit almost 100 years of history, music, architecture and memory.
There are lots of gems to be rediscovered: from bingo cards used at the Broadway Bingo Club to film footage of nights at The Venture Inn!
The interactive exhibition features commissioned work by artists Holly Beasley-Garrigan, George Lovesmith and Lukus Robbins, created in collaboration with Knowle West residents as part of 100 Years of Knowle West Style.
