Bristol’s ‘Good Food’ Action Plan – Driving Bristol’s food systems forward

Did you know that in March this year Bristol was awarded silver in the Sustainable Food Cities awards?

Following this success, we are keen to become the first city in the country to achieve the Gold award. If you’d like to join us in this mission, then read on.

To guide our bid, Bristol Food Network are updating and expanding Bristol’s ‘Good Food’ Action Plan so we can draw out developing areas of excellence in our food system, and highlight where we have gaps in provision.

Alternative Visions: undiscovered art from the south west

Outside In, Arts & Health South West (AHSW) and Bristol Museum & Art Gallery are working in partnership on a new touring exhibition, ‘Alternative Visions: Undiscovered Art from the South West.’ From 20 June - 4 November, submissions will be open to artists who align themselves with Outside In’s ethos.

The project is happening thanks to a successful Arts Council England Strategic Touring Programme bid, which will enable the organisation and production of a touring exhibition of work by artists who feel excluded from the mainstream art world due to health, disability, social circumstance or isolation.

The exhibition will tour to four partner museums in the South West: Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, Falmouth Art Gallery, Poole Museum, and The Wilson in Cheltenham. Artists who live in the South West who have an online gallery on the Outside In website will be able to submit two pieces of work for possible inclusion in the show.
