Young tour guides wanted

What’s it like being a teenager in South Bristol?  Where do you hang out? In February 2015 we’ll be working with award-winning Canadian arts company, Mammalian Diving Reflex, to create a unique journey around Knowle West. If you’re aged 13-19, interested in performance or art, and you don’t mind a bit of a walk – you could be one of our tour guides!

The ‘Night Walks’ will take place on 13th, 14th and 15th February and we’d love to show visitors the present and possible future of the area through YOUR eyes.

  • take part in an international arts festival organised by In Between Time
  • work with a team of artists from Canada
  • develop a new kind of live performance, right on your doorstep!

 For more details about getting involved contact Sandra or visit the Night Walks page.

Residents help to ‘Make the Neighbourhood’

On Saturday 21st June sixty people came to our Make Your Neighbourhood event to see the exciting things happening in Knowle West – and join in.

Activities included designing signs for Knowle West, making things out of recycled materials, our mobile tattoo parlour collecting local tattoos and their stories, and making fresh apple juice with Re:Work‘s apple pressing machine. The clear favourite for many were the bike rides from local new business and all ability cycling hub A Ride in the Park. This business was supported by the Do What You Love programme.

The stall by Knowle West Health Association & Bramble Farm sold out of locally grown veg, while many noises of approval could be heard from people tasting bread baked by local business Bread Club. Other  highlights included the My Knowle West app and the future map of Jarmans, made by Joe Kelly, an Architecture and Planning student on a placement with us.

As part of Big Green Week we also conducted tours of the building, and everyone enjoyed finding out about the history of KWMC and the environmental aspects of our building.

Amanda Ramsay, who ran a stall at the event about Knowle West Futures, said: “We were really pleased. We spoke to lots of local people that we had not met before, and we signed up some new members to our group.”

We are also pleased that one of the local businesses recruited a new volunteer – and six people came along who had never taken part in an event like this before! Thanks to everyone who came, on what was a scorcher of a day. To find out about future events visit the Events section.

A video about the event will be up soon.
