Bristol Ideas works on a wide range of collaborative programmes, delivering some of the activity itself and taking responsibility for coordinating, promoting and raising funds for the activity of others. Partners range from the local to the international. Some programmes are ongoing; some are recurring; some are for a limited period and linked to specific anniversaries. On these pages you can read about current and past programmes and their individual projects.
