Mill Park Project


We are a community of people all living within 2 miles of Mill Park. The artists who have been working with the local residents have developed a relationship with them over a period of engament since September 2015. We work from In Bristol Studios, an 1830's cotton mill, at the end of Cotton Mill Lane and have a deep commitment to the project and the community.
