Event Details

"Only risk brings reward." Ros Barber, poet and novelist.

On the night of Friday 30 November 2012, 30 artists from a range of disciplines will set out to rediscover a neglected part of the city they call home. Taking in shiny new office blocks, Victorian industrial heritage, nightclubs, waterways, hidden alleyways and a major train station, City Running asks artists and audiences the question: how do we experience our city?

Join us from 9pm at The Invisible Circus' Jackdaw Hall at Paintworks as the artists head off onto the streets of Bristol Temple Quarter armed with pens, paper, cameras and other materials to collect, document and record. From 10pm, you can sit back and watch as our intrepid artists return to base camp with just two hours to make an entirely new artwork. From midnight, the full collection of rapidly produced work will be unveiled for you to experience.

Led by Artistic Director Rowena Easton and produced by MAYK in collaboration with ArtsAgenda, City Running is a live public arts intervention that opens dialogue about the public environment.

Participants:  Amy Mason, Anna Searle Jones, Carol Peace, Chelsey Flood, Cluster Bomb, Constance Fleuriot, Daniel Hayman, Emma Kilby, Gina Lundy, Holly Corfield Carr, Itta Howie, Imogen Petit, James Beckett, Jamie Dunn, Jess Rotas, Jo Hellier, Laura Kriefman, Lee Nutbean, Lisa May Thomas, Makala Cheung, Mark Hewitt, Megan Clark-Bagnall, Michelle Henning, Nathan Hughes, Paul Blakemore, Rachel Blackman, Ros Ford, Tanya Josham, Timothy Hill.

City Running is part of a series of commissions exploring Bristol Temple Quarter designed to surprise, question and delight. They will pop up, excite and re-invent perceptions and potentials. A new collaborative initiative co-ordinated by Watershed with funding from Arts Council England. The lead producing partners are Watershed, Knowle West Media Centre and MAYK. For more information on the project follow this link.

This event is free. There will be a pay bar serving tea, coffee, beers and wine throughout the event.

Jackdaw Hall has limited accessibility. If you have specific access needs, please contact us.
