Current Projects



Selected by a panel of residents, visual artists have been selected to develop new public art works in Lockleaze.

1) 'Peephole' uses a series of reclaimed doors, configured to create a colourful structure that represents home. Shafts of light will shine from the inside out through the gaps around the doors resembling a house at night. Savinder Bual & Elena Blanco

2) Exploring how the act of making together could become a microcosm of civic life. Tom is developing a process by which he can co-assemble a temporary light pavilion for the neighbourhood, which will be both a social place and an artwork concerned with shelter and belonging. Tom McDonagh

Commissioned by Bristol City Council Art and Events Team and produced by Trigger. Supported by The Hub
