What do you see for the future of the city? An opportunity to feature in public artwork
26th February 2015
How will you, your business, institution or organisation shape the vision for the future of the city? Can you show a community in Bristol the best of what is to come?
one day : Day One – Resilience is offering Bristol Green Capital Partnership member organisations a visible presence in a future vision of Bristol that will reach thousands of members of the public during Bristol’s Green Capital year.
one day : Day One – Resilience is a participatory artwork for Bristol 2015 that has been created by local artist Sara Zaltash in partnership with the Schumacher Institute and is supported by the Quartet Community Foundation and the Bristol Green Capital Partnership. From June to September 2015, a light-footed pop-up geodesic dome will travel to 16 diverse locations across Bristol. The exterior of the dome will be illustrated with a panoramic version of Bristol that has been affected by the environmental, technological, commercial and social changes that are coming in our lifetimes. The Bristol-based artist Babs Behan has been commissioned to envisage the forecast changes and depict a version of future-Bristol that has been affected by them. This future Bristol has adapted proactively to the coming shocks and stresses of climate change, to shifts in business and the economy, to technological advances and to social change.
Members of the public in these 16 communities can witness and collectively imagine how they would respond to these changes. Entering the dome, they will be given an opportunity to film a short video of their responses. These videos will be shared globally online every week, and also monthly in 4 prominent public gallery exhibitions around Bristol, tying in with the city’s status as one of Rockefeller’s 100 Resilient Cities Network.
The one day : Day One – Resilience team are looking for 16 different public facing organisations, institutions or businesses – one from each of the 14 Neighbourhood Partnerships – to host a dome or to feature on the future vision of Bristol to help shape peoples’ thoughts about their city in the future.
