School of Activism 2019

In Easter 2019, the PRSC hosted a programme of workshops, events and activities designed to empower and inspire. From making a zine to building with eco-bricks; creating a photo story to planning a flash mob, the School of Activism helped people develop the tools to change the world.

The imagery that a City chooses to portray itself is of the utmost importance. We call on the Bristol public to help us create a new series of postcards depicting the best and worst of our fair city.

PRSC presents the launch of a revolutionary new night. The UK’s only sociopolitical comedy night, where Bristol’s satirists deconstruct the power paradigm to comedic effect, and the acts ACTUALLY get paid.

Bearpit

The Bearpit is a “Community Action Zone”, a cultural “commons”, where we can experiment different, incremental and gentle approaches to public space. Over the years the Bearpit gained its own mascot Ursa; an Outdoor Gallery and Community Cube, and an Open Air Theatre.

Street Survival

Street Stories

A collaborative project between PRSC, UWE, Frequently Asked Questions (and you!), collecting stories from all levels of housing security – from home owners to van dwellers to rough sleepers to rental tenants – to show that issues of housing insecurity affect us all.

Support our work

We run small art and community projects in Stokes Croft and around Bristol, often for free. We collaborate with other art and community groups, who benefit from our facilities and resources. We're entirely self funded, and sometimes that's hard.

If you like what we do, please consider donating. PRSC is at the forefront of defending public spaces, cultural freedoms, and an alternative voice from the city.

With your help, we can develop our workspaces, activities, projects and campaigns.

Yes, I support an alternative voice for the city.
