About the course

16-25? Out of work? Out of school? Passionate about social justice and street art? 

Come join us in a relaxed course, where you can boost your skills and express your creativity for free.

We're creating a huge public exhibition at the Bearpit celebrating the lives of 12 influential activists. Transform the Bearpit in October as part of a city wide exhibition devised by Journey to Justice honouring the history of social justice.

No experience needed! 

Over the 4 weeks you will be working with the People's Republic of Stokes Croft

You'll get to transform the Bearpit into an exhibition of social justice and work with local street artists.

I loved the course, it's been really fun. I've learnt a lot, met new people and got to work with great professionals. The group was well organised and everyone was supportive. I wanted to improve my confidence by taking part and this experience has done just that. I now know I can do so much more than I ever thought would be possible
