Building Bristol as a future city
Saturday, 1 November 2014 from 14:00 to 16:30 (GMT)

City infrastructure offers many things – housing, community services, places to work and play, and often a sense of local pride. However, this infrastructure also affects our behaviour, social interactions, consumption and even our resilience as a community. This event will explore the relationship between people and their built environment and discuss how communities can shape the future of their cities. Join local artists in redesigning the view from one of our most iconic structures – the Clifton Suspension Bridge – and help envision a green and resilient future for Bristol.
