Over 30 Art Banners are up on lampposts along Bristol's Independent District & Gloucester Road. Each double sided banner has different artwork by over 50 Bristol artists, creating a wonderfully colourful outdoor display. They are a reminder that creativity happens all year round in our community.

The Gloucester Road Art Banners project was conceived by Room 212 owner Sarah Thorp who is passionate about bringing art to our streets and promoting local business. She asked her Gloucester Road neighbour and social artist Deborah Weinreb +D to help put the project together. Deborah had previously installed banners for her Flagged Up project, commissioned for Bristol European Green Capital 2015

Gloucester Road is already known as the Longest Street of Independent Shops in Europe and attracts tourists from all over the UK and beyond. It really has ‘Everything You Need On One Street’.

Giant Art Banners along the whole of Gloucester Road add to Bristol’s legacy as a highly creative city with a vibrant Street Art scene. Words and images inform passersby of all the fantastic shops, bars, restaurants and activities in the area and hopefully will keep our independent high street flourishing

The Gloucester Road Art Banners are sponsored by Gloucester Road BID, North Bristol Artists North Bristol Art Trail, BCR Neighbourhood Partnership and Room 212.

Many of the artists who contributed artwork sell their prints in the Room 212, on Gloucester Road or online shop.

The banners were taken down last year when planning permission from Bristol City Council expired
