Ideas, Visions and Summer Arts Projects

Hotwells Arts has been working with HCCA, to plan more improvements to the Cumberland Piazza and we’d love to get feedback from you on our ideas. We’ve also been engaging with the High Water Line, an international arts project, to gather stories and histories from local residents about community resilience and flooding. Earthed are coming to the Ashton Meadows area [opposite the Create centre] to create temporary land art installations. Their first event is The Earthed Weekender on 14th/15th June as part of Bristol’s Big Green Week.

Artists Dave Bain and Oli Timmins are developing some fantastic ideas for involving local people in painting the pillars in different colours and this will be a chance for anyone in the community to have a go. Here are some visuals of how the painted pillars could make a difference to the space, to make it more striking and distinctive. We also have plans to create new planters on a more architectural scale, with Bristol Wood Recycling Project.

We will run some workshops for local people to create character designs for the pillars and walls, inspired by the history and stories of the space. . So if you’d like to join a workshop, get in touch.
