Arnolfini is Bristol’s International Centre for Contemporary Art. We provide a venue and platform for many art forms with a strong focus on contemporary visual arts and a commitment to being open and accessible to all. Arnolfini will be 60 years old in 2021 and in recent months we have redesigned the organisation as an independent charity that is part of the University of West of England, Bristol – located in Bush House, on Bristol’s iconic harbourside, Arnolfini now forms an integrated part of the university’s city centre campus. A contemporary arts centre with an international reputation for visual arts, Arnolfini also houses a multi-purpose 200 seat theatre/auditorium, a busy community and education programme, a successful specialist independent bookshop, thriving café bar (operated by Bristol Beer Factory) and a range of studio and office spaces.


All recruitment at the Arnolfini is currently ‘on hold’ due to the unprecedented situation regarding the Coronavirus.
We will be contacting individuals who have applied for recent vacancies nearer our re-opening. Thank you for your patience.
