Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol, has opened two brand new art spaces at City Hall to showcase Bristol talent and give cultural and community groups unique environments to display their work.
The new spaces sit within City Hall’s vestibules; former entrances located at either end of the building. They will be used to provide space for groups to share their projects and ideas through exhibitions, performances, cinemas and pop up art markets.
Bristol City Council’s Arts Development Team have joined up with local charity and art space experts Artspace Lifespace (ASLS) to invite local groups to express their interest in taking advantage of this unique opportunity.
Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol said: “Talent should be encouraged to flourish whenever the opportunity arises and this is why I have taken the step of opening up City Hall’s vestibules to art groups. Bristol’s arts and culture sector is a valued part of our local economy and this is a new way to support the industry. I am eager to explore alternative ways of supporting the sector as we take control of the financial challenges affecting direct council investment.”
“I am delighted to work in partnership with Artspace Lifespace in this new venture and look forward to welcoming individuals and groups to showcase their work. I hope it will provide meaningful opportunities for aspiring and accomplished artists alike.”
