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.
