Since the opening of BOSH’s homeless hub in Broadmead, the need for our old street survival drop-in session is much reduced. As a result, and in consultation with our regular visitors, we are pleased to announce that the 2-4pm session on Tuesdays is now the People’s Art Club and Community Drop-in!

Open creative sessions: bring your own project or join in with the day’s activities. Previous art clubs have included monoprinting, paper making, making papier-mache frames, portraiture etc. What would you like to create?

DOPE Magazine, tent and sleeping bag distribution:
– Sort and distribute kit for people on the street
– Bag up and distribute DOPE Magazine
– Donate tents, sleeping bags, blankets, waterproof coats & shoes.

Or just come hang out and have a cuppa!

The sessions will also provide:

  • info – printed answers to questions that come up each week
  • a clothes fixing space – providing sewing machine, zips, buttons & fabric
  • blanket exchange – bring in a dirty damp blanket & swap for a clean dry one
  • facilities – tea & coffee, toilet, electricity
  • other experts – experts invited to speak on subjects such as: rough sleeping & the law, tent living & the law, van living and the law etc
  • Dope Magazine – alternative to The Big Issue provided by Dog Section Press, sell the magazine, keep the money

Where: PRSC Space on the corner of Jamaica Street and Hillgrove Street BS2
When: 2-4pm Tuesday afternoons – starting August 27 2019
What: This is a space for sharing skills, making art and building new connections.

Drunkenness or substance abuse will not be tolerated at these sessions and anyone engaging in disruptive behaviour will be asked to leave.

Do you know anyone who would benefit from this session, or with knowledge to share?

Please pass this invitation on.

If you are interested, drop in 2-4pm any Tuesday.

WANT TO GET INVOLVED?

Run by the PRSC, the People’s Art Club offers free creative activities 2-4pm on Tuesday afternoons (open to all, those without homes particularly welcome). The sessions are run on a voluntary basis and we are inviting any local creatives to get in touch if they would like to lead or assist with a session. Please contact email hidden; JavaScript is required if you are interesting in helping out.

You’re all loving People’s Art Club so much that we’re getting low on art supplies! If you have any reasonable quality / still functional paints, pens, paper, etc, please drop them in to us (or bring them when you join a session).

The work PRSC does is almost entirely self-funded, through sales from Stokes Croft China and hiring out our venue & other creative spaces, so please donate if you can.



Did you know…?

We provide 24 hour access to running water and electricity for charging phones and devices, on the corner of Jamaica and Hillgrove Streets, BS2 Bristol.
