Exhibition Opening & Discussion Event

The Architecture Centre & Knowle West Media Centre invite you to: The Place Makers: what makes a place and who does the making?
Great places and loved spaces arent just created by architects and engineers: this event and photographic exhibition shares the stories of some of the alternative community pioneers helping to shape Bristol.
Frances Gard has photographed community activists from across Bristol - Stokes Croft and Old Market to Southville and Clifton - vibrantly illustrating how different people are pursuing the same goal: making their community a better place to be.
Do you care enough about the place where you live?
See the unveiling of new portraits - Frances Gard has worked with young photographers from Knowle West Media Centre to explore who some of the next generation of Place Makers in Knowle West are.
Meet some of the community pioneers photographed for the exhibition, share stories, find out about pioneering tactics and tools that people are using to make the places they live better, and explore how this DIY energy can have a bigger impact on our cities.
Participants include: Leighton De Burca (Old Market Community Association), Ben Barker (Southville Centre), Frances Gard (photographer), Jeff Bishop (Place Studio), and Levi Hodge (Youth Moves).
