6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Project Night is a monthly meet-up for creatives, makers, artists and producers working in and with communities. It is also part of the Social Art Network.
This Project Night will be an open space for you to share and get feedback on ideas and projects (at any stage of development) and / or to raise topics for discussion, advice and peer support.
Project Night happens monthly – on the last Thursday of the month – and alternates between being an open space for you to share ideas / raise topics for discussion and being a themed session with guest speakers.
Last month we explored ‘Occupying Public Space Now’ with Georgina Bolton (Bristol City Council Public Art Officer & freelance producer) Rosa Ter Kuile from Rising Arts Agency and the ‘Making Together‘ team (a collaboration between KWMC, AUAR and We Can Make). They offered provocations for us to think deeply about what we want and need to do in public spaces now, as creatives, artists and activists, as well as sharing some practical tips around the logistics of working in, opening up and using public spaces for art, community action and activism. The event was live streamed from the new pavilion outside KWMC, ‘BlockWest’; designed, made and built by the Knowle West community over the summer. For more information about ‘Block West’ click HERE and watch this VIDEO. The recording from this discussion will be shared online soon.
