At Knowle West Media Centre we believe that the arts have the power to make a difference to our lives, our neighbourhoods and our environment. We’re an arts organisation and charity based in Knowle West, Bristol and we’ve been supporting individuals and communities to get the most out of digital technologies and the arts since 1996. In practice, this means providing exciting and relevant ways for people to get involved in community activism, education, employment, and local decision-making.

Pans at the ready

Staff at KWMC celebrated Shrove Tuesday in style - by cooking up a pile of pancakes with a range of different fillings - from the traditional lemon and sugar to fruit, chocolate with peanut butter and maple syrup. Using two camping stoves and wary of setting off the fire alarms, staff had flipping competitions and ate their way through over 20 crepes. Sue and Jen who organised the event agreed it was "brilliant for staff wellbeing and team building."

Filwood Glow

Residents brought bikes and scooters to Filwood Broadway to decorate them with lights and reflectors for the Filwood Glow Parade this evening. The whole Broadway was closed to traffic to allow cyclists the freedom of the road. From toddlers to octogenarians - visitors enjoyed racing round the circuit, refreshments and activities. Despite plummeting temperatures there was a good turnout - with people suitably wrapped up for the occasion. The event was organised by Community Public Health to bring local people together and help to promote cycling and walking.

Hawaiian shirts, shades and sangria were the order of the day at an alternative pre-Christmas party with summer holiday theme at Knowle West Media Centre. The popular networking event for artists and creatives included a show by Tom Marshman entitled "A Place in the Sun". The audience was entertained by some alternative flamenco dancing and introduced to some typical characters you meet on holiday.

Lloyds employees do a spot of gardening at KWMC

Thanks to Lloyds employees who took up the tools and helped clear the garden at Knowle West Media Centre (KWMC), under the watchful eye of our head gardener Jez. Under exceptionally hot weather for the time of year, they turned the overgrown borders into a tranquil space to enjoy.
