Bristol visit

Last week we went to explore Bristol's Art scene.

We visited Cube, Microplex Cinema and Venue which is run by a group of voluntary artists and promoters.
We also visited Spike Island, a studio and gallery complex which is home to UWE fine art students. It began its life as an artist led initiative and has now grown into a center for new and innovative art. We had the opportunity to visit the studio space occupied by the UWE students as well as a complete tour of the building. 

We then headed for the headquarters of the Art organization Plan 9 who were more than happy to show us around their studios in the old police station. They gave us lots of information on their future plans as well as talking to us about their individual projects.
