Montpelier Bean Feast- Garage Door Gallery Proposed in Montpelier

July 31, 2009

We just received this e-mail from Sally of the Motpelier Bean Feast…

If you want to participate, send her an e-mail (At bottom of page).

Hi there,

A group of Montpelier residents have formed to resurrect the Montpelier Bean Feast – a community event that used to take place annually in the Bath Buildings/St Andrews Rd area in the 1700s.
At the top of St Andrews Rd there are lots of garages, most of which are covered in tagging.  We would like to engage garage owners in an initiative to turn these spaces into ‘canvases’ for local street artists and young people (and ideally create collaborations between them).  Over time, we’d like the area to become a positive creative space like an outdoor art exhibition.  This is directly inspired by your amazing work in Stokes Croft!

The plan is to get some transformations happening on the day of Sat 12th September as part of the Bean Feast event.  That way we can show the rest of the community what’s going on and get more interest for future developments.

We hope you may know of artists and others who would be interested in taking part?  Also, we’d be really grateful for any advice you have on putting this kind of thing together.It would be great to hear from you.
Many thanks,

Sally montpelierbeanfeast@yahoo.co.uk
