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."

Summer Holiday theme for Would Like to Meet

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.

Caribbean food at The Park

KWMC staff enjoyed a lovely Caribbean lunch at Rochlata in The Park, Daventry Road yesterday. Top favourite was Akee and Saltfish with rice and peas, closely followed by Jerk Chicken. Great to be able to sample international flavours right on our doorstep. It's advisable to book your food in advance if you don't want to wait as they get very busy.
