Event Type

Phoenix52 Community Arts was led Kerry Russell, Amy Peck and Sally Reay, local artists and makers who were based at and supported by In Bristol Studios.  They organised and delivered a range of creative opportunities and activities in the community from 2009-2017.

Collaborating, where possible, with other local artists, organisations, schools, groups, residents and businesses they provided high quality creative workshops and celebratory events that brought the community together to celebrate local creativity in all its forms within their neighbourhood.

Between 2010 and 2016 Phoenix52 delivered over ten community festivals, 50 creative workshops for local children and their parents and carers teaching new skills and encouraging creativity. They took over two empty shops and turned them into pop-up galleries to promote local artists and another empty shop that they transformed into a pop-up community arts centre, with an artist in residence scheme and space for local creative groups to meet.
