Moving Targets

Punk has more than one story - what's yours? This summer at Arnolfini we embrace the unstable, the volatile and the downright unpredictable. In Punk’s 40th anniversary year, we draw on Bristol’s independent spirit and explore punk as an attitude that has more than one history and meaning. Join in the conversation using #bristolpunk

Over the summer, we are working with UWE to improve our spaces. While building work is taking place, our ground floor will host Moving Targets and this will be accompanied by a series of gigs, exhibitions and activities.
