You are invited to an exhibition ‘Adapt & Thrive?’ by Katharina Nyilas at The People’s Republic of Stokes Croft HQ, 35 Jamaica Street.
The exhibition aims to highlight and question the effect we have on our wildlife and surroundings, from the wildlife in our urban gardens, illegal poaching in Africa to the vast oceans we take our food from and pollute.
The opening night is this Friday from 7pm – 10pm and all are welcome.
Original artwork, affordable giclee prints, screen prints, t-shirts and tote bags will be available to purchase in the shop.
The exhibition will be running until the 15th November 2013.
An extraordinary exhibition about activists and activism which will take place in the Bearpit at the bottom of Stokes Croft and, running in tandem, an exhibition of activist ceramics at the PRSC HQ.
Come to the PRSC HQ, have a glass or two, take a stroll to the Bearpit.
The exhibition will take place in North, South and East tunnels and on the newly constructed cube.
Following months of negotiation, we painted this piece of work on the Western Power Electricity Box that supplies Cabot Circus. The bear, which stands proudly in the Bear Pit is a symbol of bottom-up regeneration.
This is a potent image to have at the gateway to the City, in an area dominated by corporate imagery.
”Stand up, Bristol!
Spraycan work and Stand Up design: Epok. Logistics and concept: Chris Chalkley
Come to unveiling of URSA Bear Sculpture Friday 10th May at 6.30pm, in the Bearpit, bottom of Stokes Croft.
On Friday evening Mayor George Ferguson will unveil “Ursa”, a major new work by Jamie Gillman. Symbolic of the Bottom up approach to regeneration for which Stokes Croft is increasingly renowned, the bear stands on the roof of the men’s toilets in the Bearpit, a potent emblem for the Bearpit and the City.
A joint initiative between PRSC and the Bearpit Improvement Group, the sculpture reinforces the notion of Stokes Croft and the Bearpit as an Outdoor Gallery, and was funded by a grant from Arts Council England
There will be music provided by the Ambling band and others, and performance in the Bearpit will run into the evening.
The Art Container will host an exhibition of work by Jamie Gillman, which will include several original works and a limited edition A2 signed print of Ursa which will be offered at £20.

It’s coming up to the last day of the Jacknife exhibition in the PRSC arts container down in the Bearpit on Saturday 4th May, so we’re holding a big final last day sale.

It’s a fantastic price for a great selection of mostly Chris Hopewell’s work although we still have a very limited number of the exclusive Sepr – PRSC Snail screen prints available. So come and down, maybe on your way through to the Picton Street Market which is happening up in Stokes Croft.
Then we’ll be getting prepared for the next Bear exhibition opening on the following Saturday on the 10th May with the long-awaited arrival of the Bear. George Ferguson, Mayor of Bristol, will be opening the event. So there’s a lot going on.
