Follow Friday – Hamilton House & Coexist, Bristol

Posted by Chrissey Harrison - 1st April 2016

Hamilton House, Community centre in BristolToday’s featured Follow Friday is Hamilton House, a community arts center in our local city of Bristol.

The office block in Stokes Croft, Bristol had been vacant and neglected for many years, when, in 2008, owners Connolly and Callaghan invited Coexist to create a community centre for art and collaboration.

The centre provides working space for artists, illustrators, crafts people, film makers and other creatives and community groups. There are over 200 individuals and businesses currently hosted at Hamilton House, which also has meeting and conference rooms, event spaces and studios available for short term use. Hamilton Hub provides hot desk and co-working facilities for freelancers.

Many community groups host workshops and classes at the site, making it a great place to get involved in creative pursuits. Check out the What’s On section of the Hamilton House website.

House has been the venue for many Bristol based film making events, including Moviement organised by Bristol Film in 2014.
