The Kitchen Circus project is an ongoing collaboration between three Bristol neighbourhoods and organisations, Travelling Light (Barton Hill), Cirque Bijou (Easton) and Knowle West Media Centre (Knowle West).
In autumn 2020, three families from in-and-around our neighbourhoods connected virtually with artists who specialise in storytelling, visual art and street theatre, to co-create thoughtful, play-filled time, investigating ideas and hidden stories which are built from the place we call home. The families worked with Megan Clark-Bagnall, Mike Akers, Megan Vaughan-Thomas, Leeza Awojobi and Grapevine.
The heart of this project is about creating time to form connections, think deeply and experiment with ideas and stories that want to be told. It seems more important than ever to allow families, artists and organisations to reflect on the importance of family, home and what it means to us as we move through the current crisis.
We caught up with artist Mike Akers and the family in Barton Hill to find out more about this project. Read our interview here.
