Trinity Centre issue volunteer call for Art of Resistance heritage project

Posted on: 19 Feb 2021

Get involved as the Trinity team explore 100 years of protest art in Bristol.


The Trinity Centre have issued a volunteer callout for members of the public to work on Art of Resistance, a two-year research project delving into a century of social activism, protest and civil disobedience in Bristol.


The team are on the lookout for people to take part in activities, talks, workshops, archiving and more as they compile a comprehensive collection of art underpinning a wide range of key social movements.


Trinity Centre will be hosting a virtual Meet the Researchers session on Monday 22 February, outlining the various ways you can support the project or get involved. Find out more and sign up here.



With a team of local historians, academics, artists, activists and researchers already on board, Art of Resistance will be looking into Bristol's history of Women's Equality, Anti-Racism, Workers' Rights, Counter Culture and Environmental protests.


Unveiling the project last summer, local historian, writer, curator and member of the Trinity Centre team, Dr Edson Burton, said: 


"2020 could not be timelier for the launch of Art of Resistance. We’re really pleased to be able to launch this two-year project at a time of great public movement in the city. 


"We will work with people across the city to document the unofficial histories that are often lost over time, and capture Bristol’s creative and activist spirit by exploring the art that underpinned movements that have shaped our diverse city and country.”


The Trinity Centre will be hosting a virtual event at 18:30 on Monday 22 February, allowing the public to engage with researchers and get an idea of how to get involved.


Registration for Meet the Researchers is open here, and those interested in volunteering but unable to attend the session can get in touch via email.
