To celebrate Venues Day, we are shining the spotlight on Trinity Community Arts in Bristol.
Whether you’re having fun just getting down, having a dance or making something and being really proud of that thing that you made – art just is quite magical

In our short film (below) we look at the incredible work Trinity Community Arts do with and for their community.

This ranges from running accessible and affordable dance and music events, to nurturing emerging local artists, to hosting internationally renowned artists – including many who have contributed to Bristol’s rich cultural history.

The Trinity Centre, where Trinity Community Arts is based, is a  landmark in the East of Bristol and one of the few remaining truly independent arts venues in the city.

Trinity Community Arts believe in (and through their activities prove) the value of community art – be it a vehicle for change or a place to inspire.

As Emma Harvey, CEO of Trinity Community Arts puts it:

“In a world where people are quite polarised online, in spaces where difference can be quite scary. In a physical space when you’re enjoying something, whether you’re having fun just getting down, having a dance or making something and being really proud of that thing that you made – art just is quite magical”.

Art is a huge powerful tool to connect people in ways that they just don’t really think about. People get to then meet different people from different backgrounds that they might not otherwise come into contact with and just have fun and enjoy each other’s company
