Ashley, Easton & Lawrence Hill


We are delighted to announce that our Ashley, Easton & Lawrence Hill Winner is – Mufti & Baggator

This is a fun, mass participatory game which will highlight, challenge and raise awareness about antisocial fly-tipping. Young people will be showing their perspective and work to get local residents out on the street playing, talking & inspiring change.

What will a neighbourhood arts project look like for Ashley, Easton & Lawrence Hill?

  • The project has been shaped from what we heard from individual residents, community groups and local businesses.

What’s happened so far?

Since September 2014 we’ve been consulting people living in the neighbourhood area to find out:

  • what issues need addressing in terms of the green agenda
  • particular areas that would be great to have an arts project
  • specific community groups or members of the community an artist, maker or facilitator should work with – ie schools, unemployed or older people

How have we engaged with this area? Well, we’ve…

  • talked at the neighbourhood partnership and local forum meetings
  • been working closely with Bristol City Council’s Neighbourhood & Community Development teams
  • met with community leaders, groups and individuals
  • been busy on social media
  • left flyers in community buildings
  • held a public consultation meeting on the 13th January at the Trinity Centre
  • held a Creative Brainstorming drop in session on Saturday 7th March for artists to talk to the NAP team

What are the next steps?

  • The artist/maker or facilitators brief has been publicised for 6 weeks. The commission is for £10,000 which includes all project fees, materials & expenses, although volunteers may be provided to assist on the project. See the brief below:




“I’m a creative Bristolian and I’d like to get involved.”
