_dsc1505As part of the Bristol Architecture centre‘s 20th birthday celebrations, and as part of the Bristol800 Weekender programme, the Architecture Centre commissioned artist Jennie Savage to explore the theme of ‘people and place’ through conversation, with people living in in and around Bristol city centre.

Jennie presented the outcomes at the ‘Our Place Street Party’ event Working with local musicians, songs were written using the summer conversations as inspiration, and performed on the day, by: Last Hyena, Gill Simmons and Paul Lawless (Bold Brave Drama), Aaron Nandi, Alex Hamilton Ayres, Sharon Lazibyrd, Jane Thomason, Simon McSweeney (McSweeney Kings), Joe Walker and Lewis Toghill, Julian Welsh, Martin Urmson and Craig Keane and compered by George Williams

I was invited to live-sketch the event, with the outcomes presented at an exhibition at the Architecture centre.
