Join us for The Promise preview event with an opportunity to be first to view the exhibition.
Inside the galleries there will be a display of architecture models and other materials that relate to the history of the city including a detailed, large-scale model of the city centre, and a futuristic plan for a museum in Castle Park. These fascinating items will give an overview of the diverse ways in which Bristol has been imagined, but not always realised.
is an exhibition project that focuses on the relationship between a city’s design and the hopes and ambitions of its residents. Exhibitions and events will take place in the Arnolfini galleries and across the city of Bristol throughout the summer.
