Catch 'Make Space For Rising' at Bristol Beacon next month

Posted on: 13 Jan 2022

Experience and celebrate some of the most exciting young up and coming talents in Bristol this winter.


Next month (Thursday 10 February), Rising Arts Agency will be taking over Bristol Beacon, bringing a diverse programme of events showcasing local talent to the BS1 mainstay.


Make Space For Rising will include dance, poetry, live music and visual artists exhibiting their work throughout the venue, with the audience also getting the chance to interact with the space and leave their creative mark.


Doors open at 19:30, with the event beginning at 20:00. Entry is FREE, as are snacks and a drink for the first 50 people to arrive. Click 'book now' on Bristol Beacon's event page here to register for a place.

Make Space For Rising forms part of #MakeSpaceForMusic, a campaign developed in collaboration with Rising Arts Agency as an introduction to the new Bristol Beacon following its rebrand in 2021.


Through #Makespaceformusic, the venue works alongside young people, emerging artists and communities to make musical experiences that change lives, also ensuring that music is at the centre of Bristol's recovery from the pandemic.


Rising Arts Agency, who collaborated with the city centre space to bring Make Space For Rising to life, is a community of young creatives aged 16–30 mobilising others for radical social, political and cultural change.


The community is comprised of activists, producers, facilitators, illustrators, installation artists, and filmmakers, among others, desinged to empower underrepresented young people to fulfil their creative ambitions and make social change happen. 


Making Space For Rising performers come from Rising Arts Agency's own talent pool, with dancer Ade Sowemimo and singers Manoel Akure and Amber-Ruth Watson all featuring before DJ Adibah delivers a set late into the night. 


Keep an eye out for more announcements, there are still plenty of performers to be unveiled! Click here to visit Bristol Beacon's event page where you can find more information and book your place at this event.
