Arnolfini - est 1961

As part of the Family Arts Festival join us for our giant celebration event and family takeover.

Come along to our giant celebration as we invite  families to take over Arnolfini’s Auditorium and transform it into a fantastical and imaginative world.  

Take part in exciting activities linked to the Big Draw theme ‘It’s Our World’ as we imagine what the city would look like if families were in charge.  Work with artists and facilitators to make amazing creations to decorate our Auditorium space, take part in street play activities with Playing Out, watch and create your own animations with Watershed, invent a new form of transport for the city with Arnolfini, or create your own buildings and city spaces with Architecture Centre and Bristol Children’s Scrapstore.

Bring your lunch and picnic blanket along to take part in our big family picnic.

Throughout the day we’ll also be screening films and photos taken at all the Bristol Family Arts Festival events.  See if you can spot yourself!

If you can’t make this event we’ve come up with some ideas to inspire you to make with the family at home. Follow our Family Creativity board for regular ideas aligned with our events.
