Workshop: Co-Create a Mural with The Bristol Commons

Mon 15 April, 2024 @ 15:00 - 19:00

Free entry
Collaborative design process & creative visual storytelling

You are invited to join The Bristol Commons to co-create a mural at PRSC!

We will begin by exploring the story of the commons, looking back at its place in Bristol’s history and investigating the present landscape, before radically imagining a city transformed by commoning. Through creative workshops we will explore collaborative visual story-telling and collective visioning, the fruits of which will be woven into a mural design that will be communally painted on PRSC’s famous Outdoor Gallery wall!

The creation of this mural wall is an act of commoning itself! We invite you to participate in painting our collective story on the streets of Bristol. Through this, we are re-commoning the streets themselves and growing a living commons.

There will be an introduction to the Bristol Commons, and a presentation looking at muralism around the world and its historical relation to the commons.

Using collage poster making, we will explore and develop work around the history of community spaces in Bristol. There will also be mapping, written word (poetry) and group drawing workshops.

This is a playful and uncensored creative space where all are welcome! We will collaboratively imagine the mural design, creating a tapestry woven with the voices of the people and our ideals for a future of the commons in Bristol. These works will be re-composed and scaled up onto the 9ft x 60ft wall – join us later in the week to help paint it!

All materials will be provided, however feel free to bring relevant materials to reference/include around the Bristol Commons ethos.
