We Are Bristol

An ambitious three year programme across Bristol’s neighbourhoods

We Are Bristol will bring citizens from across the city together for the first time to collaborate and create exceptional new artistic work alongside critical city-wide debates with local, national and international audiences.

The programme has been developed in partnership with Knowle West Media Centre, Up Our Street and Ambition Lawrence Weston with funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation

The first project will bring world renowned Australian theatre company Back to Back Theatre to the city in July to create The Democratic Set, in which Bristolians will be invited to take part in a film of their city.

We Are Bristol builds on the long-term partnership with In Between Time, Knowle West Media Centre, Up Our Street and Ambition Lawrence Weston that began with 2015’s Night Walks with Teenagers by Mammalian Diving Reflex and continued in 2017 inviting 40 incredible Bristolians from across the city to collaborate with New York theatre company 600 HIGHWAYMEN to create The Record, which premiered at IBT17 Festival last year.
