Imagining Southmead

17th October IMAGINING SOUTHMEAD – EXHIBITION

Venue: ORCHARD SECONDARY SCHOOL Time: 13:30 – 15:00

We are working with Journey to Justice Bristol on this workshop and exhibition following on from the fantastic events of Meadows to Meaders. 70 years ago, when Southmead was only half built and the Welfare State was newly born, a group of schoolboys created a vision of a perfect place to live. Students from Orchard Secondary School and long-standing members of the community have been exploring housing, social justice and their estate today and comparing their views with Southmead teenagers in 1948. We are working with Journey to Justice Bristol on this workshop and exhibition following on from the fantastic events of Meadows to Meaders. After exploring themes identified soon after the Second World War about what people considered was needed for a fairer society then and what is needed today, you are invited to come and share your thoughts and add to our idea of what makes for an ideal community. OPEN TO ALL! For more information and to book email [email protected]
