BPTW is delighted to be supporting Community of Hope, an exciting new exhibition in Bristol showcasing creative visual responses to the climate crisis.

Hosted at Centrespace Gallery in the centre of Bristol, and running from 19th – 30th November to coincide with the day COP27 in Egypt comes to a close, the exhibition features artists whose work responds to the climate crisis, providing a space for people to come together to find hope and agency around climate action.

Throughout its run, the exhibition will host talks and workshops for the local community, schools and businesses, providing a platform for discussions and activities to educate and inspire changes to behaviours to support sustainability.

It will also be used as a platform for emerging local artists, especially those from groups who have historically experienced reduced access to art and limited visibility within the visual arts.

Further information on the events and workshops that will be taking place throughout the run of the exhibition can be found here: https://linktr.ee/community_of_hope_bristol

BPTW are delighted to have the opportunity to support the exhibition curators Laura Ribbons and Dominic Head. Laura previously held the position of artist in residence at the practice before going on to develop her career and is now based in Hastings.

Extending beyond BPTW’s current project work in Bristol, we are supporting the exhibition as part of our wider commitment to delivering social value within the communities we work in. We are particularly pleased to support an initiative that aligns with our own commitments to sustainability through the work we do, and our engagement with local communities.

At BPTW we continue to assist our clients in responding to the Climate Emergency by designing and promoting project outcomes which achieve Net Zero Carbon, Passive House and other high sustainability standards. Our dedicated Partner-led Sustainability Group ensure our designs are focused on carbon emission reduction, fabric-first approaches, and circular economy principles to meet the demands of modern living.
