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.

Lockdown 3.0 means all our public spaces are temporarily closed.

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

The Stokes Croft China shop is open for online orders!

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.
