The sun is shining, the tunes are pumping and the paint is flowing.
Join us for a fun and free day out at The College Project, Timsbury Walk, Bedminster Bristol, BS3 5JJ.
We love May, mainly because this is the month that Temwa hold their amazing Art for Africa auction.
It has grown year on year and continues to raise much needed funds for sustainable community development in the African Republic of Malawi.
You don’t have to collect art or even be a fan of it as the evening provides so much more, it really is a very entertaining evening.
So if you’ve not been before then why not just give it a go, and for those of you that have well you’ll know what a good night it is already so we’ll see you there!

“Having worked with Temwa over the last few years I have seen the dedication & passion they have for their work in Malawi. We work on the annual Urban Art Auction in London every year and it’s been a joy to work with them.”-Inkie
Opening this Friday 6.30pm @ the Upfest Gallery (198 North Street, Bedminster)
Featuring artists who have painted the walls at Dame Emily Skate Park, Bedminster, Bristol over the past 20 years! And that’s quite alot!
“Dame Emily Skate Park in Bedminster was, and still is, the most important and frequently painted graffiti hall of fame in Bristol.
It was where the city’s first crew, the Z-Boys, took their initial, tentative steps into writing – on a ramp, rather than a wall – and was the location of some of the biggest jams ever held in Bristol.
Over the years thousands of writers from Bristol, the UK, Europe, and indeed all over the world, have got up on its legendary walls. The Deaner as it is affectionately known, is an ever-evolving physical record of the city’s graffiti history. If walls could talk we’d be here all day (and many of us still are, whenever we get the chance). To peel away the layers of paint on the walls of the Dean Lane hall of fame would be to reveal the very history of the city’s graff scene”. – FLX
For a brilliant night out and to support an amazing charity head down to the Attic Bar in Stokes Croft on the 6th May.
Temwa is a very hard-working Bristol based charity who are continually fund-raising in order to provide a sustainable future for the people of Malawi through community based projects. 100% of the profits from the event go directly to Temwa.
It’s a really fun night and you may even pick yourself up an arty bargain.
