We're celebrating our 3rd year of running Papergirl Bristol with a family-friendly afternoon exhibition launch on Saturday June 10th - consisting of arts, crafts, cake, music and more!
This year Papergirl Bristol's exhibition will be held at EASTON COMMUNITY CENTRE, on display for a month from June 10th to July 9th. The centre is a vital - and cherished - local space, providing a wide variety of events and services for the local community - from workshops, exhibitions and classes, to internet access and career advice sessions. Our launch on Saturday June 10th will double as a fundraiser for the centre, who for many years have been involved in an ongoing legal dispute with the council. The small amount of core funding they receive from Bristol City Council will be cut completely from end of June this year. As a result the future of funding for the ECC is uncertain.
We'll be putting a some of the money we raise through our crowdfunder into hosting the afternoon (<£100), but everything else we make will go straight to the centre.
What you can expect on the day:
- A first glimpse at Papergirl Bristol's 2017 exhibition!
- Several tables of ARTS & CRAFTS activities!
- A TOMBOLA!
- LIVE MUSIC from Bristol band SPEED SKATER!
- Cafe des Amis open offering DRINKS, SNACKS, TREATS & more!
- More TBA!
To buy a ticket, make a pledge of £3 - or pledge more for added perks, including Papergirl merchandise, tombola tickets, and food and drink from Cafe des Amies. A pledge of £20 will get you all of the above plus a print from one of five local artists and Papergirl collaborators. No tickets required for children!
THANK YOU, and we hope to see you on the day!
