An interactive display brings together photographs, film, drawing, personal stories, craft objects and cultural artefacts to capture the ethnographic work of researchers at the University of Bristol, supported by community researchers.

It brings together contributions from a number of initiatives and community groups, including Barton Hill Settlement, Countering Colston, Dhek Bhal, Easton Community Centre, Rainbow Project, Refugee Women of Bristol, St Mungo’s, Workers’ Educational Association, and Wild Walks to Wellbeing.

It has been jointly funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s (AHRC) Connected Communities programme and the University’s Brigstow Institute.
