Westmoreland House

A look back at a vanished landmark, by local artist Object…

"As the gentrification of Stokes Croft and St Pauls continues apace, looking at the gap in the high street makes me wonder where the symbols of resistance and underground culture will be allowed to survive. The might of capital to shape our cities is difficult to resist, especially given the collusion and vision shared by the mayor and council. If we want to keep a city that is creative, alternative and has it's own thriving culture then investment must be in the people and culture, and developments that represent this, built around community housing and activity."

HOME: a Virtual Exhibition

We're nearing the end of The People's Art Fair HOME exhibition, last chance to see it in person! If you're passing by the Stokes Croft China Shop you can check out a selection of the physical artworks in our window, or you can view the whole show online.

Home Truths

Shelter is running a #HomeTruths campaign – reaching out to renters across our city, asking people to share what they're facing with their housing. Whether it's unaffordable rent, damp and mould, overcrowded and unsafe conditions, or homelessness, by telling us what issues you're having, you will be helping us identify the #HomeTruths we need to take action to tackle together. If you, or anyone you know/are supporting, are experiencing unaffordable, insecure or unsafe housing, please share your voice by completing our survey online, or calling on 0344 515 1430, by Tuesday 30 June 2020.
