Do15 - Greater Fishponds
We are working with the Grove Road Youth Club to create a mosaic mural for Straits Parade in Fishponds.
We have been working with Grove Road Youth Club in Fishponds to discuss potential public art projects that the young people would like to see in their area. As well as meeting with the young people, we’ve been in communication with local business owners about how they would like a creative outreach project to work for the local area.
Fishponds is a vibrant and colourful area with a number of independent retailers and shops. With young people from the youth club we have decided to complete a floor mosaic that’s message will be to ‘Shop Local’ and to support independent businesses.
We are working with David Bowers from Mosaic Madness to complete the artwork which will be installed during 2016 as part of development taking place on Straits Parade.
Islamic Cultural Fayre
Well the sun was certainly out to play - what a glorious day we had at the Islamic Cultural Fayre! Thank you to all the families who came along to make their green bunting pledges - great to hear so many of you are already doing your bit by recycling and saving water. We got to enjoy some tasty snacks and have a chat with the Bristol Mayor George Ferguson too. It was a really bustling event! Well done to the young volunteers from Bristol Muslim Cultural Society for all their help on site.
