What makes a neighbourhood? Have you properly explored your own? Who lives and works there? What about the ‘more than human’?

Join Place Portrait artists on a visit to their installation at Spike Island Arts and a wander around the harbour. This participatory workshop will encourage conversations about the multiple layers of a neighbourhood and whose eyes we view places through. Refuting the estate agent perspective of one of the most photographed views of Bristol, you’ll be invited take a single polaroid photo, collect some ‘street treasure’ and write or record a few words of something that has caught your attention during the walk.

This walk is accessible to people with impaired mobility. It will begin at Spike Island and end at Watershed.

Place Portraits marks the culmination of the second Spike Island and Creative Youth Network Engagement Fellowship for Artists and is part of the West of England Visual Arts Alliance programme, supported by Arts Council England.
