Running until Sunday 30 October, exhibition explores Bristol’s role in the climate and ecological emergencies through seven themes - power, technology, consumption, nature, health, justice, and future.


Admission to this event is on a pay-what-you-can basis. Visit M Shed's website for more details.



Think Global: Act Bristol, M Shed's latest exhibition, explores environmental questions affecting people in Bristol and worldwide, and presents perspectives from a wide range of local voices.


Historical objects from the museum's collections help attendees to think through how the industry and growth the city is built on has contributed to environmental damage and led to changes in recent years. 


Numerous art commissions help visitors visualise invisible effects and collaborative solutions, whilst community members are also on hand to discuss the challenges facing the city right now and to highlight the work being done to tackle them.


Attendees will be able to participate in these discussions, sharing tips and actions, meeting like-minded people and contribute their vision for Bristol's future through the power of collective thought and action.


Whilst school's out, this family-friendly exhibtion makes the perfect day out this summer.
