The Bristol Bus Boycott Commemorative Walk
Join Active Archives for a commemorative walk animated with poetry, performance and reflection, that will journey through the city stopping at historic sites.
Placing the Bristol Bus Boycott pioneers within the long line of African heritage change makers and freedom fighters, the walk seeks to connect past, present and future action towards liberation. Come as you are or with a placard or a poem to share. We also encourage dressing up as your most inspirational revolutionary figure or taking direct inspiration from the Bristol Bus Boycott, your best 1960s attire! This will be ‘serious revolutionary fun’.
Active Archives is a new voluntary collective that specialises in cultural tours and creative ways of bringing archives and history to new audiences. Their work includes tours, cultural research, historical re-enactments, cultural ceremonies, dance and augmented reality projects.
This project is a recipient of the Bristol Bus Boycott Community Grant scheme, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
