Pick of the Week: Stencilling in Stockwood

Rife Guide Picks of the Week

Find out what’s on Rife Guide this week, including an opportunity to get arty and bring a bit of brightness to an unloved area of Stockwood.

As part of Bristol’s year as European Green Capital, there are arty projects going on all over town to brighten up parts of the city which need a bit of love. This week, on Wednesday and Thursday, Hollway Road Carpark in Stockwood is going to get a much-needed makeover, and it’s up to us citizens of Bristol to get it looking as good as it can.

So, whether you’re a passionate amateur in the art world or a seasoned professional with an Instagram account dedicated to your work, what could be better than chilling out in the afternoon with a paintbrush in your hand? With a bit of practice, who knows, you could be Bristol’s next graffiti superstar – move over Sepr.

There’s no need to book and it doesn’t cost any money – just come along to the carpark during the daytime on Wednesday or Thursday. Full details, including the address, can be found here, on the Rife Guide.

Planning to go to this? Want to show off some of your amazing art beforehand? Tweet us your pictures, tag us on Facebook or Instagram or march into the office with your portfolio – go on, you know you want to.

Support more young people to have their voices heard

Rife is Watershed‘s online magazine created for young people, by young people.

We offer paid internships and publish work by young writers, photographers, illustrators, and filmmakers from all sorts of backgrounds, helping them get into creative careers. Rife has reached over 8,000 young people through our workshops, over 220 young people have made stuff for Rife on topics ranging from mental health to identity to baked beans, and last year, over 200,000 people visited our website.

In these complex and uncertain times hearing from and supporting young people who are advocating for social change and contributing fresh perspectives has never been so important. 

Through supporting Rife you can ensure that this important work continues and that more young people have their voices heard.
