Please join us on Human Rights Day 2021 and for Disability History Month to celebrate a new mural for Bristol.

The mural has been designed by Deaf people, Disabled people and asylum seeking people in Bristol with artist Andrew Bolton and researcher Rebecca Yeo.

The mural shows the barriers we face, and how we hope things can change if we can work together.

Meet some of the team, learn from their experiences and enjoy some refreshments.

There will be BSL interpreters and audio description of the mural.

New Mural project for Bristol

Group of Black, Asian and white Disabled people of different ages and genders. Everyone is pointing to a piece of paper on a table.

BRIL and Disability Murals are inviting Disabled people, asylum seekers and refugees to join us for a new mural project.

We will be working together to make a new mural for Bristol. We want the mural to show other people about:

● Our experiences of the Covid pandemic.

● What our lives are like.

● What we want and what we need to change.

If you, or someone you know, wants to take part here is some information:

You don’t need to be good at drawing! You can put your ideas in words, drawings or photographs.

Everyone will be given everything they need to take part. An artist will then help put all the ideas together into one big mural, to be shown in Bristol.

If it’s safe we will meet up, or we can talk on the phone, or meet on the internet. We will decide together what we want other people to know about our experiences during Covid. 

When the mural is finished we will have a big celebration. We will invite people who we want to see the mural and to understand our messages.

We want people to work together to try make things better for all of us.

If you are interested and would like know more, please get in touch!
