Growing Spaces is a project looking at the maze of citywide allotments, allotment holders, their histories and stories – both visual and oral. The project has a number of strands where photographers and writers collaborate to build a living archive of photographs.
Follow this link to see photos of allotments in Bristol and elsewhere, including many of our own Horfield & District allotments – both recent and from the archive. (You need to scroll down to see the photos). The project is also accepting input from the general public so if you have some interesting allotment photos you’d like to share, go to the “Participation Guidelines” section and follow the instructions.
This project is delivered by Bristol Photo Festival run in collaboration with Bristol Museums and Galleries and Arnolfini Arts Centre. A selection of the results will be included in a dedicated exhibition as part of the Bristol Photo Festival 2021 exhibitions programme.
