Stokes Croft Walls

Stokes Croft Walls

Apart from the PRSC Outdoor Gallery in Jamaica Street, there are many communal walls in Stokes Croft attracting artistic talent. Colourful examples of walls great and small can be observed daily.

Think Local – No Tesco mural on the junction between Stokes Croft and Sydenham Road.

A variety of painting and visuals are added to Stokes Croft on a daily basis. Head to our Flickr for an archive of works in the area.

Stokes Croft paints its own future, thus enhancing its sense of identity; its sense of community. Because of the economically challenged nature of our quarter, many of the locations in Stokes Croft form gaps in the normal commercial landscape. This can be seen as a disadvantage; a gap-toothed smile. PRSC sees only opportunity: the opportunity to flavour forever the visual nature of our quarter.

Turbo Island legal wall

As the walls on the Carriageworks became unavailable for painting, we installed some boards on Turbo Island. And then you walk past and find gems like this (artwork by HazardOne, Keep it Colourful, Soap, January 2019).
