Event description

Description

We Can Make is a Bristol-based initiative developing new ways of creating affordable homes to better meet the needs of communities.

Over the last six months it has brought together Knowle West residents, artists, academics, architects and policy-makers.

Join Knowle West Media Centre and White Design for a special 'housewarming weekend' to celebrate the opening of the first prototype We Can Make home: a straw-bale building designed by White Design and made in Knowle West (the TAM):

- find out how you could stay in it and test it out
- see beautiful fittings and interiors made by local people
- find out about the We Can Make approach to creating more affordable housing

On Thursday 7th September and Friday 8th September we'll be hosting a series of events at the TAM, which is located beside Filwood Community Centre on Barnstaple Road.

Housewarming Preview & Celebration BBQ: Thursday 7th September, 6.30–9.30pm
Talks & Tours: Friday 8th September, 1-6.30pm

The TAM will also be open at Knowle West Fest on Saturday 9th September between 11am - 3pm so you can drop in and see us then!

Book your free ticket for the housewarming BBQ and tours here.
