Somewhere in the City is a participatory arts and heritage project that has been exploring an over-looked, historic area of Bristol: a cluster of streets and lanes behind the Hippodrome and extending up to Red Lodge.
The artists participating in the project have worked with AIM to explore this area of the city and have, through research and investigation, created works of art from their responses to the site.
All the artists involved in the project have some form of disability and the project has given them the opportunity to develop and evolve their own practice while contributing their unique approach and vision to the city in which they live.
The project is part of an EU funded international exchange program, Expanding Realities, in collaboration between AIM, CIT Crawford College of Art and Design, GASP, Cork Ireland and Debajo del Sombrero, Madrid, Spain.
The exhibition will be shown in Arnolfini's Light and Dark studios, Level 2. The artists will be on hand at periods throughout the exhibition to discuss their work.
