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.

Launch of Pop Up Furniture Factory

An unveiling of the brand new Pop-up Furniture factory for Knowle West attracted crowds of local people when it opened its doors to the public last week. A showcase of new factory equipment - including a laser cutter and CNC router as well a range of recycled furniture made by local people were just some of the attractions. There was also the chance to chat to groups using the building such as Sew Clever and find out about local projects run by KWMC and re:work.

Over 65 people came to Andy's Haven Nursery at the Park this weekend. Highlights included the new baby chicks, petting the three goats and feeding the hens. Luckily the rain held off! Here are some of the visitors having a great time. Thanks Andy.
