Cultural partnerships and connections

Our portfolio of strategic alliances, partnerships and collaborations across the city includes a number of creative and cultural organisations. This means we can deliver courses at inspirational venues plus place you centre stage in the creative heart of the city.


Located in Bristol’s vibrant harbourside, Arnolfini introduces new and major work by international artists to over 500,000 visitors a year. It is one of Europe’s leading centres for the contemporary arts and presents innovative, experimental work in the visual arts, performance, dance, film and music.

Our partnership builds on existing work with the Arnolfini and offers studio spaces above the gallery for our creative courses.
