We promote art in the community

PRSC curate an outdoor gallery in Stokes Croft, with our own wall on Jamaica Street attracting local and international artistic talent.

We improve and bring life to our urban environment

We make radical fine bone china

Our artists make experimentally decorated china right here in Stokes Croft, using new and salvaged ceramic transfers.

We campaign for local issues

Since 2007, the People’s Republic of Stokes Croft – PRSC – has worked tirelessly to promote civil liberty with a particular focus on public space. Sweeping, painting and speaking out are part of their resistance to zealous overregulation of independent initiative. Their lead has arguably encouraged others to do the same and, as a result, Stokes Croft remains a hub of confident and creative dissent.

Tier three restrictions have closed most of the public events at the PRSC, though the People’s Art Fair – Winter Edition is running.

The Space will be available to hire from Jan 3rd for whatever socially distanced activities are allowed.

We are also still running our Street Survival sessions, as the homeless still need support during this time (here’s how you can help).

The Stokes Croft China shop is open!

We fund our entire operation through china shop sales and venue hire – by ordering from our online shop or donating you can help to ensure our future existence. We appreciate all your patience and support throughout this difficult time.

Stokes Croft Food Project

Stokes Croft Food Project is a collaboration between local businesses, charities and campaigners, set up to tackle hunger and food poverty in Stokes Croft by providing nutritious food to those most in need in our community, particularly during this global health crisis.

Street Survival

Skill-sharing/self-help sessions for local rough-sleepers, Tuesday afternoons 2-4pm. Survival skills, tips and tricks for living on the streets, tea & coffee, plus a blanket exchange offering tents, bedding & toiletries.
