Meet the Art of Resistance Researchers

Find out more about volunteering on the heritage project

This is an online event via Facebook, Monday, 22 February 2021 from 18:30-19:45.

Art of Resistance is a 2-year project exploring 100 years of social activism, protest, and civil disobedience in Bristol, and the art that underpinned each movement.

This event is an opportunity for anyone interested in getting involved to meat the project's lead researchers:

Community Worker and socially engaged visual artist, Jude Hutchen (Women's Equality); writer, arts producer, and Director of City Chameleon, Bertel Martin (Anti-Racism/Anti-Fascism); historian, writer, and programme creator, Dr Edson Burton (Workers' Rights); publisher, Richard Jones (Counter Culture); and activist, Yaz Brien (Reclaiming the Environment).

  • Anti-Racism/Anti-Fascism: Black Shirts to Black Lives Matter - Bertel Martin
  • Workers' Rights: Hunger marches to unionising the gig economy - Dr Edson Burton
  • Counter Culture: Rastafari, Squatters, Travellers, and the free party scene - Richard Jones
  • Reclaiming the Environment:  CND, Extinction Rebellion, graffiti to street art -Yaz Brien
